As some of you may know from my previous stories, I love State Houses. One of my favorites has been the Massachusetts State House in Boston. There is just something about Boston that feels inherently historic and stately already, so their state house felt extra stately. The classic gold rotunda and the intimate state rooms were great parts of their tour, which was, of course, free. The State House is ideally located right downtown, and it is part of the Freedom Trail, so you're bound to pass it if you are doing any of the touristy things around inner Boston.
