Boston Field Trips

 Boston Field Trips


A field trip to Boston with Colonial Capital Tours sends us back to the era of the American Revolution. There is much historical touring to do and it is mostly all along the iconic Freedom Trail.

The Freedom Trail is the red bricked path that weaves through downtown Boston and reaches most all famous attractions including Quincy Market, Faneuil Hall, Boston Massacre site, the State House, Granary Burial Ground and Boston Common. Continue to the North End where early Italian immigrants settled to see Old North Church and the Paul Revere Home.

A field trip to Boston will also include a visit to the other side of the Charles River to ascend Bunker Hill Monument and board the U.S.S. Constitution, the oldest commissioned U.S. Naval warship. We continue to Cambridge and visit the epicenter of higher education at Harvard University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

Your field trip to Boston would not be complete without a visit to some of Boston's famous museums such as the Boston Tea Party Ship Museum, the Boston Museum of Science, and the New England Aquarium. Harbor cruises depart from the Aquarium wharf for a relaxing, narrated sail of Boston Harbor with all its history.

Your Boston field trip is enhanced by visits to several attractions that are located outside of Boston such as Lexington and Concord battlefields where thanks to Paul Revere's warning, the Colonists were able to intercept the Redcoats as they marched toward Boston. At Plymouth Plantation, we board the replica Mayflower II and visit the Pilgrims as they go about their daily lives in the 16th century. At the Salem Witch Museum, we will experience what life was like for those accused of being witches at a dramatic Salem Witch Trial.
