“Old Ironsides” Annual Fourth of July Turnaround

By

In part of a 4th of July tradition, the U.S.S. Constitution raised its colors, hoisted its sails and left port from the Charlestown Navy Yard for its annual turnaround.  “Old Ironsides” is the oldest vessel still commissioned in the United States Naval fleet.

In the Boston Harbor last Monday, the warship sailed along the Boston Waterfront until it reached Castle Island where its crew conducted a 21-gun salute from its battery of canons before turning around and returning to its home for another year.  Here’s a video of this year’s event.  Doesn’t get any more patriotic than this… Happy Birthday, America.

Boston Waterfront, a Great Place to Live!

By

Posted by: Joe Taglieri

Get the most from your trip to Boston!  Visit Boston, and you’ll discover the charm of one of America’s oldest and most Historical Waterfronts.  Boston’s many tourism and historical attractions provide visitors with plenty of places to explore and interesting things to do.

Naturally, Boston has changed a lot since Samuel Adams and fellow Sons of Liberty plotted their tea party in the local taverns near the Boston Waterfront – but you’ll still find the old Wharfs plus plenty of other authentic historical sites, right next to skyscrapers, gleaming hotels, and some of the best Waterfront Locations the city has to offer to call home.

Visit Boston, and you’ll also find a modern, vibrant waterfront city with thriving theaters, concerts, gorgeous parks, lots of outdoor recreation, a lively nightlife, and of course, great places to live on the Boston’s Waterfront Historic Wharves; including Commercial Wharf, Lewis Wharf, Union Wharf, Battery Wharf, Burroughs Wharf, and E. India Row.  This is a short walk and just as enjoyable to see by any of Boston Waterfront’s short cruises that take you all around the historical Harbor.

If you visit Boston, expect to fall in love with the City’s Old World charm and character.  You might even consider it one of the best places to live on earth with a great ‘neighborhood feel’.  Boston is a place you visit once and instantaneously want to move too!  Which makes owning a home in Boston a great investment for property owners and city dwellers alike.

Contact me if you need help locating the perfect Boston Waterfront home.  I’d be happy to assist you!
