What else do you need to know about Historic Boston?

Puritans from England colonized Boston in 1630 on the Shawmut Peninsula, though archaeologists say the peninsula was home to natives over 6000 years prior to the English arrivals. The Puritans originally called their town Trimountaine, but it was soon renamed after the Boston of the English county Lincolnshire. The colonists soon created Boston Latin School (America's first public school) and Roxbury Latin School (which has continually provided education for over 360 years).

Boston was the second-largest town (behind Philadelphia) in Britain's American colonies – and one of the largest in the British Empire – when the American Revolution was fought from 1775 to 1783. Boston was central to several events of the war, including the Boston Massacre, the Battles of Lexington and Concord, the Boston Tea Party, Battle of Bunker Hill, the Siege of Boston, and Paul Revere's midnight ride. If you're in Boston, your rented car will make visiting any or all of these historic sites easy and fun!

By the time the United States became an independent nation, Boston was a major shipping port and a center for the new country's trade, manufacturing and engineering achievements. For example, the first subway system in the country opened in Boston in 1897. And its numerous universities and colleges make the city a hub of higher education, as well as medical research and treatment.

The Boston Tea Party Ships & Museum and Old South Meeting House staged a re-enactment in 2012.
