    Much of the Freedom Trail is wheelchair-accessible, so a good option for an orientation of the city and its history. Harbor cruises and trolley tours might also be another good bet. Lastly, Boston's Franklin Park Zoo could be a fun outing. Hope this helps. Here's a link to a more detailed accessibility overview of the Freedom Trail and its various highlights: http://www.access-able.com/dBase/details.cfm?id=2113

    If I were coming from the UK and wanting to experience the 4th of July, I would probably head for New York City, New York or Washington, D.C. I'm sure there are many other wonderful places, but New York City really knows how to hold celebrations. They have great fireworks displays and great New Year's Eve celebrations. T.here is probably more history in Washington, D.C. or Boston On a personal side, I no longer attend fireworks live, I prefer to watch them on television. Columbus, Ohio holds fireworks on the 4th of July along with activities for families all day long. Their fireworks are called, "Red, White and Boom". It all depends on whether you want the big city experience or would rather go to a small town for their celebrations. Smaller fireworks and a smaller town experience can be just as rewarding. If you are going with friends, go along with them, wherever they are going and share the experience. If you hate large crowds and heavy traffic, watch it on television and keep changing the channels to see what all is happening in different cities. I hope you have success in making your decision, and welcome to the USA.

    There are moving walkways between the terminals so the walk is not too severe unless you have a short connection time. I had a 25 minute connection a few weeks ago and had to run from A to C with 2 large suitcases which was not pleasant! If you are short of time when you hey to terminal C, you can go to the airline check in desk of your airline and tell them to call the gate and that you are on the way thru security. An hour should be sufficient and wish i had had another 30 mins - good luck!
