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.

Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island
Charlottetown is located on Prince Edward Island, just off the eastern shore of Canada, in the Gulf of the St. Lawrence River, separated from mainland Nova Scotia by the Northumberland Strait. The city is the capitol of PEI, and is known as Canada's birthplace after the historic 1864 Charlottetown Conference which led to Canada's Confederation. Province House National Historic Site of Canada is open to the public.

The Charlottetown boardwalk takes you along the waterfront overlooking the harbour entrance. The boardwalk is part of a walking trail that travels from Confederation Landing Park along the waterfront to the Victoria Park lighthouse. The historic Beaconsfield House, built in 1877, serves as the headquarters for the Prince Edward Island Museum and Heritage Foundation and is open to the public.

The Charlottetown Driving Park ("Atlantic Canada's Fastest Racetrack") has been holding harness racing since 1889. If you've never seen pacers race, don't miss it. Try a ride above the traffic in the Red Double Decker London Bus to see it all in scenic Charlottetown, complete with guides and narration.
