This year’s America’s Credit Union Conference & Expo lands us in one of America’s oldest cities. Boston is scattered with the footprints of the founders of this country and tales of the American Revolution. Rich in history and American culture, Boston mixes the past with the present providing a look back in time to how our country got to where it is today. So while you’re here, mix work with fun. Visit the shops, take in the scenery and see some of the great historical landmarks that this town is known for. The Story Behind the Beans

Boston got its Beantown nickname due to the popularity of baked beans in the city during the early 1700s. At the time, Boston was flowing with molasses. Slaves in the Caribbean grew sugar cane that was then shipped to Boston to be made into rum and sent to West Africa. Bostonians would bake the beans in molasses for several hours to create the famous Boston baked beans. To sample the dish, visit Durgin Park located in Faneuil Hall Marketplace or Union Oyster House located at 41 Union St., on the Freedom Trail, one block from Faneuil Hall.
