Welcome to the birthplace of the American Revolution and Modern Democracy!

About the Destination

Welcome to the birthplace of the American Revolution and modern democracy (and the home of Harvard, the Red Sox, New England clam chowder, Abolitionism, the telephone – just to name a few!). Follow the famous Freedom Trail to visit major historical sites starting from Boston Common and ending at the USS Constitution Museum, the oldest commissioned warship afloat in the world.

Learn about Boston’s progressive role in arts, sciences and social change, and find out why the city is a hub for higher education when you tour the Harvard campus. Examine the largest collection of fine Japanese art outside of Japan at the Museum of Fine Arts, or, if all this learning piques your appetite, try a cup of famously creamy New England clam chowder at Quincy Market, followed by a game at Fenway Park – the oldest ball park in the Major League!
