Just in time for the Fourth, we’ve got the perfect tour for patriots. It’s in Boston, Massachusetts, and there aren’t many more patriotic American cities than that. If you want to study and/or celebrate our country’s first determined steps toward freedom, Boston is the city for you. It’s packed full of historic sites from the American Revolution. It was home to many prominent historical figures. And it offers some of the most powerful stories from black history as well.
Our Pilgrims and Patriots Boston educational tours include some exciting attractions, not the least of which is the Freedom Trail. This popular Boston tour is marked by red brick. The colorful path marks the direction you need to take in order to visit almost all of Boston’s sites from the American Revolution. They include Old North Church, the Old South Meetinghouse and the Old State House. The tour begins at Boston Common, one of the oldest parks in the nation.
The Pilgrims and Patriots tour takes you to many other sites as well. You’ll visit the tall monument on Breed Hill that commemorates the Battle of Bunker Hill. And you’ll visit the Paul Revere House, the USS Constitution, and the Minuteman National Historic Park. There are several other exciting sites as well, including a couple for sheer thrills – the Salem Witch Museum and the Dead of Night Ghost Tours. (With a city this rich in American history, you knew we’d throw in a few ghosts, right?)
We definitely recommend Boston for student tours, and this Pilgrims and Patriots focus is a thrilling way to experience this modern city with tons of historical clout.
