Boston Tour - Top Attractions
As the capital of Massachusetts, Boston is New England’s largest city and one of America’s oldest dating back to 1630. From the Colonial times of early European settlers through to the war of 1812 and the Boston Tea Party, Boston has evolved into a world-class center for education.
Along with famous educational institutions like Harvard Medical School, Berklee College of Music, and the Boston Conservatory, the notable places we visit on our Caravan Boston tour include:
Old North Church – “One if by land, two if by sea.” Built in 1723, this National Historic Landmark is Boston’s oldest church and in 1775, two lanterns from the church steeple signaled the beginning of the American Revolution with Paul Revere’s midnight ride.
Faneuil Hall Marketplace – Perhaps one of the most historically significant points of interest in the United States, Faneuil Hall was completed in 1742. Leading up to the American Revolution there were countless public meetings within the walls of this building including the historical meeting on the morning after the Boston Massacre in 1770. Today Faneuil Hall is a shopping store with many fine stores and restaurants.
Massachusetts State House – Situated in downtown Boston at the top of Beacon Hill, the Massachusetts State House was built in 1798 and features a federal architectural style. It originally came in at over five times the budget, costing just over $130,000 (which is just over $3 million in today’s dollars).
Lexington Battle Green – This National Historic Landmark is where the first shots of the American Revolution were fired.
Boston Common – This is the oldest city park in the United States dating back to 1634! Composed of over 50 acres of land, key landmarks inside Boston Common Park include:
- Robert Gould Shaw Memorial
- Boston Massacre Memorial
- Soldiers and Sailors Monument
- Boston Common Frog Pond
- Boston Common Tablet (aka Blackstone Memorial Tablet)
Boston MA Lodging and Accommodations
Along with historical attractions visited on your Boston tour, this city has so much more to enjoy. From museums and galleries to its exceptional theaters and entertainment venues like Fenway Park, Boston is a vibrant city well worth exploring. Fenway Park is home to the Boston Red Sox baseball team and has hosted the World Series 11 times since 1912.
While on Caravan’s New England tour, your guided vacation includes a one-night stay at the Embassy Suites Logan Airport upon arrival in Boston, MA. This all-suite hotel is less than 2 miles from the Boston City Center and is the perfect hotel to kick off your visit to Boston.

Caravan's Proud History
In 1965, Roger Mudd hosted a two-hour CBS TV special on Caravan Tours. This TV production took about one month to make and was so successful it inspired the 1968 romantic comedy movie “If it’s Tuesday this must be Belgium.” In the early 50’s the Mayor of Dublin presented Caravan with the Key to Dublin for bringing the first American tour to the city after WWII. Since then, Caravan has been recognized as a pioneer in travel. You can trust in our stability, experience and dedication to quality.
