This is said to be the sure of where the Boston Tea Party was planned. I honestly don’t know if that’s the case or not, but I’m willing to bet it probably was. It’s a great old building and has seen a lot of history...More
Old South Church in Back Bay started here (or rather, it is an extension of what began here). It's a very traditional-looking Congregational/Anglican structure with enclosed pews and upper balconies. The 183 foot tall steeple makes it a visual landmark from many places in Boston...More
The Old South Meeting House has a small admission fee and a AAA discount. The thing we liked the most was the awesome scavenger hunt for the kids. They had different hunts according to age level. Our kids decided to work together. The scavenger hunt...More
Not only the home of the Boston Tea Party meeting, but also the site of many other social justice campaigns throughout US history, including current issues. We spent a couple hours there reading all the exhibits and listening to the different stations.
Experience history where the Boston Tea Party began! This hall rang with words from Puritan sermons, public meetings, and the tea tax debates - visit Old South Meeting House and add your voice to history.

We visited with our four children - ages 5 to 11. The site has a selection of search and finds available that are relevant across ages. The kids’ enjoyment of the site was greatly increased by the search and finds; they spent 30 minutes seeking...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
your camera ready to capture its peaceful beauty in the middle of a bustling city. Continue on through the Gardens and take in some open green space at the Boston Common, where you can spend time throwing a frisbee, sitting on a park bench, or, in the winter time, skating on the frog pond. Head north from the end of the Common to see the golden dome of the State House, and travel through government center to Quincy Market and Faneuil Hall, both a historic and popular destination worth a quick visit for a first time to Boston. Head to Long Wharf to visit the Aquarium, or catch a boat to Charlestown or even Cape Cod.
