Incredibly charming and walkable, Boston is ready to greet you with cobblestone streets, stately brownstone buildings, distinct neighborhoods, art museums, shopping, and more. This is the Cradle of the Revolution, and you’ll feel that energy is as strong now as it was in 1773

The true heart of Boston, Faneuil Hall has been a marketplace and meeting hall since 1743. After that, it’s your time to discover Boston on your own. Perhaps you’ll follow the Freedom Trail from Faneuil Hall to “Old Ironsides” herself, the legendary USS Constitution.

Tonight, sit down to dinner at a local restaurant with your fellow travelers and toast to new friends met in the old city of Boston.

This morning, leave the bustle of Boston behind for the quiet of Lexington and Concord. These two towns were key in the start of the American Revolution, and your first stop will be Minute Man National Historic Park.

Afterwards, head to the exact spot where the “shot heard ‘round the world” was fired, the Old North Bridge. Then, you’re off for nearby Lexington to visit Buckman’s Tavern and the Lexington Battle Green.
