The Freedom Trail, Quincy Market, Fenway Park - they are just some of the sites that make Boston a city like no other. Its critical place in the history of our country is evident throughout, yet it’s also a vibrant, modern city with fanatical sports fans and more Dunkin’ Donuts than you can count. And we’ve created the perfect day trip to introduce or reacquaint you to Boston! We’ll see the best of Beantown from a private tour of Fenway Park, home of the Red Sox since 1912, to the nation’s oldest university, Harvard. (Or Hahvahd, if you’re from Boston.) We’ll imagine how Paul Revere felt when he made his historic “midnight ride”; hear tales of how he and other famous settlers fought for freedom and experience the magnitude of what our forefathers suffered through as you walk along the Freedom Trail. You can grab “lobstah” rolls in Quincy Market and throw tea into the Boston Harbor. Our day includes roundtrip transportation on JetBlue, luxury coach while in Boston, an engaging guide for the day, dinner and lots of Diversions extras.
Learn about Harvard's 400 year history from costumed guides who will entertain as they spill the beans on the little known details of the university’s past as well as some of the silly stories that make Harvard unique. The nation’s oldest institution of higher education comes to life as you discover things you never knew about Harvard, such as how the university library is tied to the RMS 'Titanic,' the mystery of the John Harvard statue and a little tale about rebellious pig roasts. You’ll even have a few minutes to pick up that Harvard sweatshirt from the university bookstore.
Known as “America's Most Beloved Ballpark", (some Orioles fans might disagree), Fenway Park is a place where dreams are made, traditions are celebrated and baseball is forever. See the home of Red Sox legends, Ted Williams, Carl Yastrzemski and Carlton Fisk. Visit Pesky's Pole and sit atop the world famous Green Monster overlooking left field.
Boston’s street apparel boutique Bodega is a bit like Narnia—it’s got all kinds of cool stuff inside, it’s full of colorful characters, and it’s hidden behind a seemingly ordinary portal. Tucked away in the Back Bay area, Bodega looks like an old, unmarked 7/11 to the casual passerby. For Bodega’s followers and sneaker fans worldwide, it’s the place to get the freshest kicks and threads—as well as a peach iced tea for the road. If the best things are worth searching for, this must be the hippest store around! Luckily, we know the secret door!
Boston Baked Beans, Indian Pudding, clam chowder, lobster rolls, oysters on the half shell…all New England delicacies that join a cornucopia of foods from around the world to create a unique dining experience at Faneuil Hall Marketplace including Quincy Market. After lunching at one of the many choices, spend a few minutes enjoying the world class street performers who audition each year to perform unimaginable acts of juggling, acrobatics and more for crowds of visitors. Or browse the unique pushcart vendors offering the best of New England artisans.
At the Boston Tea Party Ships & Museum, we’ll be a part of the famous event that forever changed the course of American history. Meet the courageous men and women responsible for this historic act of defiance in the award-winning multi-sensorty documentary “Let It Begin Here” and learn what role you will play in “the single most important event leading up to the American Revolution.” Fight for your rights at an interactive colonial town meeting before dumping the tea from a full scale restored 18th century sailing vessel.
The Union Oyster House, located on the Freedom Trail, near Faneuil Hall, enjoys the unique distinction of being America's oldest restaurant. This Boston fixture, housed in a building dating back to Pre-Revolutionary days, started serving food in 1826 and has continued ever since with the stalls and oyster bar in their original positions. Daniel Webster was a daily customer, drinking his tall tumbler of brandy and water with each half-dozen oysters, seldom having less than six plates. President Obama stopped by while campaigning. There’s no place better (or more historic) to slurp an oyster!
We’ll begin our tour of the Freedom Trail at Paul Revere’s house. On the night of April 18, 1775, he left this small wooden home in Boston’s North End and set out on a journey that would ultimately make him a legend. Today the home is still standing at 19 North Square and has become a national historic landmark. It is downtown Boston’s oldest building and one of the few remaining 17th-century dwellings in a large urban area in the United States. From there, we’ll board one of the oldest public transportation networks in the country, Boston’s T, for a quick ride to the beginning of the Freedom Trail. Our walk along the trail includes Boston Common, Massachusetts State House, Benjamin Franklin Statue & Boston Latin School, Old Corner Bookstore, Old South Meeting House, Old State House, and the site of the Boston Massacre.
We can’t leave Boston without a big Italian meal at Pastoral’s. Heavenly wood-fired garlic knots and focaccia, plenty of pasta, salads and of course, pizza mark the perfect end to our day.
