Today, instead of traveling across the country, we traveled back in time to the Revolutionary War.
First up on our blast from the past- a stop at the Boston Commons, a historical park with an awesome view of the Boston Capitol building. We also followed the Freedom Trail to the Boston Massacre site.
Our awesome bus driver, John, maneuvered the 16 foot wide roads of Little Italy, where we visited the home of Paul Revere, and the Old North Church. We got to see the original bells of the church, the underground crypt, and even the black church cat named Prince.
We enjoyed lunch in Little Italy, feasting on authentic Italian subs and desserts. Luckily, we burned off our hearty lunches by climbing 294 steps to the top of the Bunker Hill Monument. Afterward, we left the city to visit different historical sites from the Battle of Lexington Concord.
In the late afternoon, we explored Boston by a new way of travel- boat! We loaded the Duck Tour boat/truck and headed out onto the Charles River where some girls even got the chance to drive the boat! After a long day of walking, we ate more than our stomachs could handle at Uno’s.
Finally, we’re back to bed for an early 6 a.m. start in the morning. We’re New York City bound! (:
