Pilgrims and Patriots

This Boston tour celebrates all the historic wonder of Boston, which is often called the birthplace of our nation thanks to the events that took place around these landmarks leading up to and during the American Revolution.

Day One

Concord Museum

View some of the oldest American artifacts, including the lantern referenced in the poem about Paul Revere’s ride and some of Thoreau’s belongings from Walden Pond.

Minuteman National Historic Park

You’ll find the famous North Bridge here as you learn more about the American Revolution while standing where some of its important events took place. You probably remember the role of the heroic minutemen in colonial America during the Revolution. This park is named in their honor and tells their story.

Salem Witch Museum

Learn more about the Salem witch trials and the chaos that surrounded these events.

Boston Harbor Cruises

Codzilla is the most exciting of the vessels that take you on a water cruise like no other. Refreshing, entertaining, and filled with information about the Boston skyline and its prominent features, a Boston harbor cruise is always a hit.

Day Two

National Heritage Museum

The spirit of America thrives in this museum celebrating patriotism, adventure, invention, and community throughout America’s history.

Plimoth Plantation and Mayflower II

It’s called the Mayflower II because it’s a replica of the original, but it certainly deserves the name. You’ll feel you’re experiencing the real thing as docents aboard are dressed in period clothing and tell the story of the Mayflower in first-person. Plimoth Plantation similarly immerses its visitors in another time and place.

Dead of Night Ghost Tours

This is one of the most thrilling ways to discover the history of the area. Follow your guide by lantern light and shiver to ghost tales and legends from the past.

Day Three

Freedom Trail

This famous red brick trial connects most of Boston’s most prominent historic landmarks. You’ll begin at Boston Common and visit Old North Church, the Old South Meetinghouse, the site of the Boston Massacre, the following sites, and more.

USS Constitution – The oldest, still-commissioned, still afloat, warship in the United States.

Faneuil Hall Marketplace – An exciting mix of Boston history and culture.
