Description

Be sure to read the Special Notes further down this page for important requirements and restriction.

Board your comfortable transportation and enjoy a scenic city drive to Harvard Yard. Stroll through Harvard Square past the hallowed halls of one of America's oldest and most prestigious universities. Experience the lively atmosphere, step into one of the local cafes, and peruse the bookstores as you explore this historic institution that graduated such famous patriots as Samuel Adams, John Adams, and John Hancock.

History abounds in the town of Lexington and your tour explores this quaint area with a stop at the infamous Lexington Green. On April 19, 1775, less than 100 Minutemen faced 700 British soldiers. A shot rang out and a skirmish began that launched the American Revolution. See the Henry H. Kitson statue erected in 1900 that memorializes the Lexington Minutemen. Continue your exploration of towns that play a leading role in American history with a visit to Concord and a stop at the serene grounds of the Old North Bridge. Lovingly restored, the bridge is famous for the 'shot heard 'round the world,' the site of the first American victory in the Revolutionary War.

On your return to Boston visit the famed Quincy Market, a two story marketplace built out of New England granite. The indoor pavilion has over 100 shops, an abundance of eating establishments, and delightful street performers that stroll through the area. Here, enjoy lunch on your own and time for independent sightseeing.

Refreshed, re-board the transportation and continue your scenic tour past patriotic highlights culminating at the Old North Church. Relive Paul Revere's midnight ride and learn the history of this epic event of the American Revolution. It is on this very spot that Paul Revere ordered two lanterns hung in the steeple to signal how the British redcoats were on the move: 'One if by land, two if by sea.' Look up and you can see the lanterns proudly displayed in the church's tower. A scenic drive brings you back to port at the completion of your day.
