Top 10 Boston Historic Sites To Visit On Vacation

Paul Revere House Boston

There is no better place in America than Boston to experience the richness of America’ journey from a diverse group of British colonies to independent nation.  In this walkable city, significant and carefully preserved colonial-era sites are clustered were the city took root – downtown close to the harbor, and in the North End. It is through these sites that the story of America’s founding is told.

 

Paul Revere House

Also in the North End, the first impression: it’s small.  The second:  it’s very old, evident in floors and stairs, footstep-worn since its construction in 1680. Best known as the home of patriot Paul Revere between 1770 and 1800, a house tour reveals small rooms with interesting furnishings and artifacts focusing on the Revere era as well as 17th and 18th century life in early urban Boston. From spring through fall, the entry courtyard comes alive with demonstrations of colonial crafts, cooking, silversmithing, displays of Revolutionary War surgical tools.

Boston Tea Party Museum and Skyline

The Boston Tea Party Ships & Museum
A compelling, historically accurate portrayal of the Boston Tea Party, the act of colonial rebellion that took place on December 16, 1773, propelling the colonies towards the American Revolution, takes place daily.  The hour long experience, occurring throughout the day, is a must do. It has it all – high-spirited costumed actors portraying real Bostonians involved in the decisions and acts that led to the event, action and audience participation. Full-sized replica 18th century sailing vessels are boarded and explored, an experience counterbalanced by exhibits using 21st century technology and a moving film.  On view: one of only two tea chests known to have survived that fateful night. As the tour moves through 3 different settings, visitors are transformed into 18th century patriots, donning feathers and storming down to Griffin’s Wharf to “Dump the Tea into the Sea!” A dramatic conclusion impacts every visitor. The tour concludes in Abigail’s Tearoom on the top level of this floating Boston museum, the perfect place to enjoy a cup of tea the fabulous harbor and panoramic skyline views.

Enjoy a pleasant 1 ½ hour Sunday Brunch aboard a triple deck riverboat with a slow turning paddle on the stern, the kind that in the early 1900s made the journey upriver to Augusta.  As cruising upriver is no longer viable, a leisurely Savannah Riverboat Brunch Cruise around Savannah Harbor offers a different perspective of the city and the 21st century activity along its waterfront.  Kick back, get off your feet for awhile, enjoy being on the water with a nice breeze blowing, watch the waterfront and the huge ships going by while savoring Low Country shrimp and grits, eggs Benedict, omelets, quiches, fried chicken, ham, waffles, biscuits and gravy, salads, fruit, and desserts.

Old State House Boston

Walk the Freedom Trail
Follow the famous red line through one of the few American cities whose history dates back to the 1600s, and where so many historic sites, most from the 1700’s, have been preserved. You can walk the line on your own, but the way to go is on the Freedom Trail Walk Through History tour.  You’ll see and learn things you can’t possibly do on your own, even with GPS-guided apps. Being led through history by enthusiastic, knowledgeable guides dressed in 18th century period clothing who stay in their assumed role as a historical character throughout the tour, makes it an interesting and enjoyable experience. Through their eyes and voice, historical facts, trivia, wonderful stories delivered with accuracy and humor, come to life.  It’s the best way to really see and understand what went on in Boston in the lead up to the American Revolution. It’s a fascinating journey which begins at the Boston Common and meanders through colonial Boston where history happened.

Man Ziplining over Hilton Head

The thought of flying through the air over the trees sounds thrilling, but with the “I want to” comes the fear factor. While we might have always wanted to fly like Peter Pan, people weren’t necessarily meant to fly. But now we can!  Zipline Hilton Head guides you from beginning to end and makes it a blast!

I have long wanted to try ziplining. I also find the magnificent salt water marshes and meandering river systems of coastal Georgia and South Carolina Low Country exceptionally beautiful. I am fascinated by the way all parts of this unique landscape interact – tidal flow, sand, mud, and spartina grass “islands” broken up by lacy estuarine fingers meandering through them. Traveling from Savannah to Charleston along Route 17, I have marveled at this richly abundant ecological system visible along the road and have wished for a bird’s eye view.
