Being a total and complete history geek the one thing I can say I love about my city is its richness in history. One of my favorite places to witness signs of Boston's historical background is downtown at Haymarket Sq. Here in this small square there is a mix of history, modernity, culture, and tourism. I was lucky enough to capture a couple of examples of this during my walk through Haymarket and also grab some bags of yummy fruit to help me through my Weight Watcher day ;)

Creek Sq and surrounding Areas
Creek Sq is one of my favorite spots in Boston! Its one place where you're completely surrounded by history and its like standing in the middle of the 1700's.
...and then of course there is Haymarket itself. With all it's city of Agraba loveliness (that's an Aladdin reference for all of you non-Disneyans), Haymarket has a range of sellers with an array of fruits, vegetables, spices, cheeses, and breads. All the colorful sellers and display of peoples of different ethnicities and origins make Haymarket a must do of Boston.
Take a step right across the street from Haymarket Sq and you enter Quincy Market made up of shops, restaurants, and street performers. Old architecture takes on a new flair with modern shops gracing their hallways.
