History in Boston

Boston is one of the oldest cities in the U.S. and an amazing city to visit for students studying History & Politics, Business or even Sports & Leisure. It played a key role in the American Revolution, something which groups can see highlighted on the Freedom Trail, a 2.5-mile walking route of historic sites that tells the story of the nation’s founding. Visit it on its own or maybe better as part of a multi-centre trip alongside New York, Washington or even Philly and inspire your students.
