A week long trip (or at least a 4-5 days long trip) to Boston, Massachusetts, was a perfect time-frame for us to admire the beautiful architecture (17th/18th century  and modern) and to explore the very rich history that is embedded in the by lanes of the city as it had the honor of hosting some of the critical events that led to the American Revolution against the Britishers in the 17th century. You instantly feel the difference in the architecture of the city that is so different from the fairly newer architecture that you come across in the other cities of US.
