My 12-year old daughter recently returned from a weeklong trip to Boston. Her friend invited her to join their family as they visited various sights around this historic city. They visited an aquarium, several museums and threw tea in Boston Harbor. Her favorite stop was a tour around Old Salem that concluded with a visit to the Salem Witch Museum. Before she returned home, she purchased a number of trinkets for her siblings that included a mini Declaration of Independence she set aside for her old sister.
