Freedom Trail
Today, history comes alive as we walk along the Freedom Trail. Our Bostonian guide will share stories of the American Revolution, and we will see historical sites such as the Benjamin Franklin statue, celebrating one of Boston’s most famous native sons; the Boston Massacre Site, marked by a cobblestone ring denoting the site of the 1770 civilian massacre and Revolutionary War precursor; and the Old State House, the oldest surviving public building in Boston. Enjoy the afternoon at leisure to further explore this wonderful city at your own pace. From world-famous museums and universities to boutique shopping and legendary taverns, there are so many fantastic things to do. You may want to take a tour of the iconic Fenway Park, sample a Sam Adams beer at one of their taprooms, see the USS Constitution, or perhaps visit the JFK Library. Rest assured, there is a plethora of activities to fill your afternoon. Gather this evening for a farewell dinner and sample some local chowdah and lobstah! (B, D)
