Boston National Historical Park encompasses some of the most stunning urban viewscapes in the nation. Stories of the past intersect with daily life everywhere in Boston: Views of 18th century historic buildings are backdropped with Victorian office buildings and modern skyscrapers. Historic ships sail past neighborhood parks and working seaports. Children play underneath granite monuments and bronze memorials.
