Go back in time to the era of the American revolution and sit into one of our the secret meetings, where you’ll shout and hoorah at the patriot’s plan to throw tea over the harbor – a MUST do activity while visiting Boston.

Arrive early as there is usually less people in the daytime, and take in the scenic city views of Boston, MA. First, you’ll put your feather on (a sign of patriotism) and be taken into a room where centuries ago the patriots would meet to discuss their struggles while living under the Queen’s rule. The room is extremely quaint, and people wearing period attire will greet you. Here you will be given a persona to portray and you may be asked to read lines to really add to the story. It will be a time rampant with shouting and screaming.

Scream all the way down to a period boat where you’ll embark to carry on this task. Grab the tea and have fun throwing it right into the Harbor.

Learn more about the American Revolution, and the act that started it all – the Boston Tea Party.

You can finish out your trip at the gift shop and restaurant, where you are able to do a full tea tasting to really round out the day.

If you are in Boston, kids or no kids, you must absolutely positively at least visit the Boston Harbor. It really is lots of fun and you will learn more during that hour than you ever did throughout your schooling years – or maybe that was just me. At the very least, with all the screaming and throwing, you will let any anger out!
