The Old North Church

When Paul Revere made his famous midnight ride it was in the steeple of the Old North Church where the lanterns hung—one if by land and two if by sea. Built in 1723 and located 193 Salem Street, the Old North Church is a piece of American history that can’t be missed.

Fenway Park

Even if you’re not a baseball fan who hasn’t heard about the Green Monster? Fenway Park is one of the oldest and most iconic ballparks in the United States, and a must see Boston landmark.

Boston Tea Party Ships and Museum

The Boston Tea Party was a major precursor to the American Revolution. On December 13, 1773 political protesters known as the Sons of Liberty and led by Samuel Addams boarded ships owned by the East India Tea Company and threw the chests of tea in to Boston Harbor. You can board the ships yourself and relive this historical moment.
