Travel to the cradle of Independence where the first shots of the American Revolution were fired.
A great way to travel to Boston from New York is via train aboard the famous North Eastern Regional; a route that carries more passengers than any other railroad line in America. You will ride along the American Eastern Seaboard passing through such places as Stamford, Connecticut, New Haven (home to Yale University), New London and more. Half the joy of going to Boston is the trip itself! Along the way your guide will describe what you are seeing.
Once you arrive at Boston's bustling train station, you will almost immediately become immersed in this fab city. . . Your guide loves Boston ALMOST as much as New York and it shows as you experience this very walkable City on foot.
You will arrive at the Boston South Station and immediately walk 2 blocks to see the famed 'Boston Tea Party Ship". Then up Summer Street which becomes Winter Street (can you believe it?!!) and onto Boston Common to start your walk along the famed Freedom Trail and see where it all began. You will see the magnificent State House, Boston Common, the famed "Old Corner Bookstore", King's Chapel, Old State House, Quincy Market, the Boston Harbor, where you may wish to have lunch, Paul Revere's House, the 'North End', and, time permitting, Bunker Hill.
During your Boston experience, you will likely want to visit one of Boston's famous seafood restaurants to enjoy la feast of locally trapped Lobster.
