We love to bring student groups of all kinds to historic Boston, principally because there is an unending list of universally interesting things to see and important lessons to be learned there. Boston, "the Athens of America", is right in our own backyard, about an hour’s commute from our Portsmouth offices, so of course, we know the city very, very well.
Virtually every student on each of our trips (see the sample itineraries immediately below) will see such Revolutionary War icons as the USS Constitution (Old Ironsides) at the Charlestown Navy Yard, Faneuil Hall (the Cradle of Liberty), the Old North Church, Paul Revere’s house, and the Bunker Hill Monument among many others along the Freedom Trail.
Two of our favorite sites are the historic Lexington Battle Green and Minute Man National Historic Park in nearby Concord, a short distance from the North Bridge where colonial commanders ordered militia men to fire back at British troops for the first time (the shot heard ‘round the world) on April 19, 1775. The multi-media, “Road to Revolution” presentation there commemorates the opening battle in the American Revolutionary War and ends with a highly memorable, live musket-firing demonstration.
Most of our groups also visit the New England Aquarium and the incomparable Museum of Science (one of the premier science museums of the world) and in three days, the average length of our general educational trips, we quickly run out of time to see and do everything that Boston has to offer. In short, planning a trip to Boston becomes a matter of deciding what NOT to do.
