Boston Colonial Sites

Boston Colonial Sites

Often called the Birthplace of the Revolution, Boston retains its historical vibe, even to this day. From the Old North Church where Paul Revere hung his famous lanterns, to America's oldest park, Boston Common, here are the sites you can't miss.

What to See

  • The Freedom Trail — a 2.5-mile (5-kilometer) path through the heart of the city, connecting 16 major historical sites

  • Lexington and Concord — two nearby towns that bore witness to the opening shots of the Revolutionary War

  • Plimouth Plantation — a living history museum where you can immerse yourself in the daily lives of the area’s first English settlers and the Wampanoag people

  • The Boston Tea Party Ships and Museum — an interactive peek into the famous act of defiance that kickstarted the American Revolution

How to Visit

  • Book a Freedom Trail walking tour and get up close to many of Boston's top historical landmarks, plus a few of the modern ones too.

  • Take to the water on a scenic harbor cruise, or sail over to the USS Constitution, America's 'Ship of State'.

  • Travel back in time with a full-day experience at Plimouth Plantation, or visit three key Revolutionary sites on a half-day tour of Cambridge, Lexington, and Concord.
