You can see, hear, feel, and sometimes even smell, the history throughout Massachusetts. Check out the very rock where the Pilgrims landed, and 访问 Plimoth Plantation to see what life was like in the 1600’s, before cell phones and reality TV. 走在 Freedom Trail in downtown 波士顿, where every step tells a story of the American Revolution. Hear the famous “shot heard round the world” on Lexington Green, where the first shots of the Revolutionary War were fired. Get goose bumps sitting where giants in the abolitionist movement sat in the brilliantly restored African American Meeting House. Feel the hull of Old Ironsides, otherwise known as the USS Constitution. What did the 1830’s smell like? Apparently awesome, according to the bread they’re baking and the candles they’re dipping over at Old Sturbridge Village, one of the country’s oldest and largest living history museums.
