Description

Enjoy Boston's Best Value tour presented by professionals. Your Bigly adventure passes Boston Common, America’s first Public Garden, 1870s Swan Boats and the Bull and Finch Pub, inspiration for sitcom Cheers. Entering the Back Bay, admire Gilded Age mansions, Richardson's Trinity Church, Copley Place, and the Boston Public Library. See our upscale Copley Place and Prudential Shops Malls. Proceed past the stunning Christian Science Center's seven-hundred-foot reflecting pool. Learn about and see Fenway Park, America's oldest baseball stadium, home to the Red Sox. Pose for a picture with the Teammates sculpture depicting the great Ted Williams. Return to downtown Boston and up Beacon Hill, admire mansions of wealthy Bostonians of the 1800s, with fortunes made in global trade and textiles. Take a picture of beautiful cobblestone streets and gas lanterns and hear the the story of the purple glass panes. Atop Beacon Hill is the Massachusetts State House, replete with a beautiful gold-leaf dome, a symbol of the wealth. To the right is the spectacular Robert Gould Shaw Memorial depicted in the Civil War movie 'Glory.' The City of Presidents is a quick jaunt from Boston, and offers you the opportunity to see where Presidents John Adams and John Quincy Adams were born. See the oldest presidential birthplaces in America where John Adams drafted the Massachusetts Constitution, and Abigail wrote her famous letters to during the American Revolution. On the opposite end of the city is Peacefield, that became home to generations of distinguished members of the Adams family. (Entry into these historic homesteads is not practical due to NPS prescheduling requirements and restrictions.) Then it is off to tour the Harpoon Brewery. Learn about the many steps taken to produce a world class brew and how important beer was to rebels and Red Coats alike. Sam Adams was a masher at one time but not a very good one! Enjoy a light lunch at the new beer hall or the casual 1950s Yankee lobster shack next door. A lobster roll or fish 'n chips? This is where the locals grab lunch. After lunch, we head past Little Italy (with more than 50 Italian restaurants), Bunker Hill, to tour the USS Constitution, commissioned in 1797. After walking her decks, your guide will return you to your hotel or pick-up spot with fond memories of your Bigly adventure!
