Begin your tour with a visit to the JFK LIBRARY AND MUSEUM. The museum at the Kennedy Library captures the powerful story of the Kennedy years, giving visitors of all ages an uplifting, “first – hand” experience of presidents Kennedy’s life, leadership and legacy. The next day you will take an HISTORIC BOSTON TOUR including parts of the FREEDOM TRAIL. A visit inside OLD NORTH CHURCH is included. LUNCH on your own at QUINCY MARKET. Afterwards you are invited inside the MASSACHUSETTS STATE HOUSE. The cornerstone for this building was laid on July 4th of 1795 by Governor Samuel Adams and Paul Revere. The State House occupies the former site of John Hancock’s cow pasture! A very special event is included (May to October) of a SWAN BOAT RIDE in the BOSTON PUBLIC GARDEN. The Swan Boat story dates back to the 1870’s when the first boat was launched in the lagoon at the BOSTON PUBLIC GARDEN. Your third day begins with a HARVARD YARD TOUR, or Hahvahd Yahd as the locals say it! Afterwards it’s on to LEXINGTON AND CONCORD TOUR for a a narrative journey to the start of the American Revolution. It was here in Concord and Lexington that the first shots of the Revolution were fired as the farmers took a stand against British oppression. Your guide will take you to North Bridge where the “shot heard ‘round the world” was fired and other sites. CONCORD MUSEUM is included with the famous Revere lanterns, treasures of Thoreau and Emerson and a collection of antiques. A visit to Boston would not be complete without some seaside touring! On your fourth day you will visit the towns of SALEM, GLOUCESTER and ROCKPORT. Take in the HOUSE OF SEVEN GABLES inspiration of author Nathaniel Hawthorne’s book of the same name. The afternoon is spent in ROCKPORT, designated by Walt Disney as one of the most picturesque towns in America, and famous for its art colony located on Bearskin Neck. See the MOTIF #1, a most-photographed “fish shack that refused to go away”. Free time for shopping at galleries and shops. LOBSTER BAKE DINNER is included tonight! We saved the best for last and today you will end your trip with a WHALE WATCH! See these magnificent creatures aboard a 3 hour cruise before traveling home.
