Boston’s Most Historic Moments
Boston is known for its role in the American Revolution, but there’s so much more to the story! Join Revolutionary Spaces on a compelling new walking tour that explores Boston’s enduring role in the American story from its founding to the present. Beyond the Revolution takes you to 10 different downtown sites that range from can’t-miss landmarks to lesser known gems. You will leave inspired by diverse stories of how Bostonians made their voices heard in their ongoing pursuit of a free society.
Tour tickets include all-day access to two of the Freedom Trail’s most iconic sites: The Old South Meeting House, where the Boston Tea Party began, and the Old State House, which was the center of government in colonial Massachusetts.
