Charleston, South Carolina
Charleston is a notable tourist destination, with streets lined with grand live oaks draped with Spanish moss. Along the waterfront are many beautiful and historic pastel-colored homes. The city is also an important port, boasting the second largest container seaport on the East Coast and the fourth largest container seaport in North America.

As an old colonial city, Charleston has a wide variety of museums and historical attractions. The Old Exchange and Customs House in downtown Charleston, finished in 1771, is arguably the third most important Colonial building in the nation (behind Faneuil Hall in Boston, Massachusetts and Independence Hall in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania). The building features a dungeon which held various signers of the Declaration of Independence, and also hosted events for George Washington in 1791, and the ratification of the U.S. Constitution in 1788. It has also served as a U.S. post office, the first Confederate post office, and was used by the U.S. Coast Guard.

Charleston is the location of Fort Moultrie, which was instrumental in delivering a critical defeat to the British in the American Revolutionary War, and Fort Sumter, the reputed site of the "first shot" of the American Civil War. Patriot's Point, located across the river in nearby Mount Pleasant, South Carolina, is also home to the USS Yorktown as well as several other naval vessels. There are also several former plantations in the area, including Boone Hall Plantation, Drayton Hall, Magnolia Plantation, and Middleton Place. Charleston's premier art museum is the Gibbes Museum of Art, one of the country's oldest art organizations and home to over 10,000 works of fine art. Also the Charleston Museum was the first Museum in the Americas.


Boston Harbor
Boston, the capital and largest city in Massachusetts, and one of the oldest cities in the United States, is the economic and cultural center of New England. The city proper has a population over 600 thousands, and anchors the larger metropolitan area of Greater Boston with a population over 4 million people.

Puritan colonists from England founded the city in 1630. During the American Revolution Boston was the scene of several historic events, including the Boston Massacre, the Boston Tea Party, the Battle of Bunker Hill,and the battles of Lexington and Concord.

After independence, Boston became a major port and manufacturing center.

Since its discovery by John Smith in 1614,[2] Boston Harbor has been an important port in American history. It was the site continuous back filling of the harbor until the 19th century.

By 1660 almost all imports came to the greater Boston area and the New England coast through the waters of Boston Harbor. A rapid influx of people transformed Boston into a booming city.
