Our guide, Penny, used the most of every minute of our day tour of Boston, Lexington, and Concord. To actually see sites read about in American history is awesome for history buffs. This area was monumental for starting our way to independence. To imagine it...More

The site marker for the massacre is well labeled and nice to see. Puts a lot of what happened on that day in perspective. The museum however was small and not worth the admission price. We were in and out in less than 30 minutes...and...More

The proximate cause of the massacre is attributed to a wig-maker's apprentice who confronted one of the British defense personnel and demanded payment for services rendered. A slap, some heated words, stones thrown, a snow-ball or two, and the brandishing of clubs This was a...More

The Boston Massacre Site is just a memorial set into the sidewalk. It is something interesting to look at. Unless you know your history or have a brochure you won't know what it symbolizes. There are no explanation signs. The memorial is on a busy...More

While it isn't a huge memorial, it is where the "unhappy disturbance in Boston" took place, so in and of itself it is an interesting place to stand. You must be walking to see the marker on the ground or you'll miss it. It is...More

Well it’s a bit rich calling it a massacre... Going by today’s standards , blink and you will miss it . Maybe a statue or sculpture would be more fitting .

We've heard the stories, and seem the "pictures". Now tell us the truth. Paul Revere's illustration should be here to show what the propaganda did to stir up the trouble. 5 people were killed and the interpretation between the British and the Boston residents was...More

The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with
historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through
one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston
Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling
statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the
pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where,
during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting
children and eager tourists through the pond. Have
