Meet your guide across from the Old State House, a ‘must-see’ landmark on Boston’s Freedom Trail. Follow the trail to Faneuil Hall and Quincy Market: learn about the rousing speeches and meetings where early Americans crafted revolutionary ideas.
Walk down the ‘Blackstone Block’ historic area to the New England Holocaust Memorial, a moving installation of glass towers inscribed with numbers, quotes and poetry. Peek through the old-fashioned window panes of Union Oyster House — the oldest restaurant in America — where locals and tourists belly up to great bowls of chowder and locally made beer.
Take in vivid stalls overflowing with fresh fruit and vegetables at Haymarket, then see the classic ‘red sauce joints’ of Boston’s North End. See the Old North Church where Paul Revere hung his ‘one if by land, two if by sea’ lanterns, then walk past his former home, the oldest surviving house in Boston. Head to the waterfront to catch a glimpse of the USS Constitution, ‘Old Ironsides,’ across the Boston Harbor and finish your tour close to the North End’s best attractions, restaurants and sights.
