Know more about the Revolution
Start in Boston, where you’ll walk in the shoes of the Founding Fathers on the Freedom Trail. Hear how the first sparks of revolution flew in Boston and how those sparks became an inferno! The revolution comes alive as you pass sights like the church where Paul Revere’s famous lanterns once hung. Learn about the Sons of Liberty and get to know crucial figures like John Hancock. Plus, uncover the truth about misunderstood events like the Boston Massacre.
Next, immerse yourself in the ship-rigging, ale-drinking, shanty-singing days of Colonial Boston on Boston’s Harborwalk and revisit the fiery lead-up to the American Declaration of Independence. Stroll along the waterside and find out what exactly led to the dramatic protest known now as the Boston Tea Party. Then, visit the site of the Tea Party itself!
Afterward, head to Lexington and Concord, two towns that entered the history books when they heard the “shot heard ‘round the world.” Here, you’ll follow the route of an impossible battle between a ragtag American militia and the most powerful military in the world: the British redcoats. Relive the underdog struggle, discover how the Americans turned the tide, and hear what it all meant in the fight for American independence.
Then head to Valley Forge, where General George Washington faced some of his toughest challenges. Here, you’ll explore the remains of Washington’s 18th-century camp and hear the harrowing tale of how frigid temperatures, starvation, and desertion nearly pulled the American army apart. Find out how Washington kept his men together and rallied them for the fight ahead.
Finally, you’ll tour Philadelphia, where the Declaration of Independence was first signed and the Constitution was first ratified. As you explore this beautiful city’s most historical parts, you’ll get to know Philly’s adopted hero, Ben Franklin, and the other revolutionaries who called this city home. Plus, you’ll see iconic landmarks like the Liberty Bell and Elfreth’s Alley, maintained just as they were in the 1700s.
This tour bundle is for you if you want fascinating American history, riveting stories, and beautiful cities!
