Sarah Palin has said she's not trying to step on Mitt Romney's political toes as she visited Revolutionary War sites in Boston before heading to New Hampshire.

Palin's latest stop on her tour of historic sites came on Thursday, the same day the former Republican Massachusetts governor officially announced his White House bid in New Hampshire.

Palin said if she thought Romney would be offended by the timing and proximity of her visits, she would have canceled them.

Palin toured the Old North Church and the Paul Revere House in Boston's North End neighborhood before stopping by the Bunker Hill Monument in the city's Charlestown section, which memorializes a battle between American colonists and British forces in June 1775.

Palin said her trip was not intended to be a prelude to a presidential run.
