Description

Unlock Boston's rich tapestry of history with the Action Tour Guide app - your pocket-sized guide, map, and audio narrator. Kickstart your adventure at Boston Common, the heartbeat of the city. Delve into the 1930s, touching the city's roots and catching whispers of the early independence calls against Britain. From the clamor of the Stamp Act Riots to the symbolism of the Liberty Tree, immerse in tales that stirred a nation. Gaze upon the gold-domed State House and unravel the mysteries of its 1795 time capsule. On route to the Park Street Church, pause at Robert Gould Shaw's memorial, a hero from a different epoch: The Civil War. Dive back into the 1700s to fathom Britain's punitive taxes and the colonies' bold rebukes. In the Granary Burying Ground, rub shoulders with legends like Samuel Adams, John Hancock, and Paul Revere. Witness the allure of King’s Chapel, Boston's first Anglican church, and the venerable Latin School, where luminaries like Franklin and Hancock once roamed. The Old South Meeting House beckons next, revealing the authentic tales of the Boston Tea Party. Experience the gravitas at the Old State House, where Bostonians first heard the Declaration of Independence, and then unearth the realities of the notorious Boston Massacre. Recharge at Faneuil Hall's bustling marketplace before basking in the serenity of the Rose Kennedy Greenway. Marvel at the imposing Custom House and step into yesteryear at Paul Revere’s preserved abode. Remember his famous signal at the Old North Church? “One lantern if by land, two if by sea.” Then, brace yourself for a spectacle – the majestic USS Constitution, known as Old Ironsides, and dive deep into its maritime skirmishes. Your journey crescendos at the Bunker Hill Monument, a tribute to a turning point in the Revolutionary War. While the tour concludes here, the stories of Boston continue to resonate, including a bonus exploration of the gripping Battle of Bunker Hill. Dive deep, explore more, and let Boston's tales come alive!
