Ports

The Port of Charleston is a seaport and the oldest city in South Carolina, US. The unique atmosphere is the result of numerous historical buildings and a cultural blend which includes English, French and West African elements. To sample this atmosphere you must try the local cuisine, take a walk to the Charleston City Market and attend one of the many cultural events throughout the year.

Boston is the capital of the Massachusetts state, well-known for its excellent universities: Harvard and Massachusetts Institute of Technology. But there is more to Boston than education! Visit the Fenway Park sports complex or one of the many museums in town. The beautiful waterfront invites for a stroll and, once you're there, don't miss visiting the Tea Party Ship replica.
