Boston, America's "Cradle of Liberty" is the city where the birth of a nation took place. Boston fare has always been hearty and earnest. Shortened to "Beantown", Boston was originally known as "Home of the Bean and the Cod." Traditional fare included baked beans and scrod (young cod). Boston is America's most walkable city. The original street layout and "The Emerald Necklace", 9 continuous scenic green parks spaces designed by Frederick Law Olmstead, are best appreciated on foot. The city's 18th century scale was designed for walking, long before automobiles were invented. Many of Boston's historic sites are best seen by pedestrians as is the famous Freedom Trail. Boston's historic architecture includes prime examples of 18th and 19th century homes on Beacon Hill and in the North End where Paul Revere's house stands. The classic Victorian row houses of Commonwealth Avenue and the French influences of Back Bay, Harvard Yard and Tory Row mansions in Cambridge including Longfellow's home, visited by Charles Dickens, are not to be missed.
