A weekend in Boston

Take a trip to the great state of Massachusetts and tour Harvard, Samuel Adams Brewery and cheer on the Red Sox at a home game.

The Hahvahd Tour

Start your day with a tour of Harvard University.  The Hahvahd tour is a student-led walking tour that takes you through the famous Harvard Yard and past the colleges where plenty of famous faces have stayed during their time at the school.  The student guides have plenty of fun stories that make the tour more than history and facts.  Tours leave from outside the Main Harvard Red Line Subway Station at the Cambridge Information Booth daily.

Samuel Adams Brewery Tour

Hop back on the subway across town to the Samuel Adams Brewery Tour.  First, take a walking tour of the brewery where you learn all about the ingredients by getting hands on.  You’ll taste, touch and smell all the key ingredients that make the beer what it is.  Then go to the tasting room where you get to try all different kinds of Samuel Adams brews. The team serve very generous samples and the tasting glass is yours to keep. Best yet, it’s free!

Catch a baseball game

To end your first day in Boston head out to Fenway Park to watch a baseball game.  Even if you aren’t a big sports fan it’s an incredible experience to be in the stadium with all the die-hard fans.  They sing, shout and Mexican wave for hours of game time and take the cheers very seriously.  Any seat is a good seat so grab your ticket a hot dog and prepare for a fun night.

 

Yale University Tour

For your second day in Boston, drive down to New Haven for another university visit.  Yale is over 300 years old and is home to beautiful libraries, residential colleges and parks.  Tours are student-led and run for about an hour and are free.

 

Boston Cream Pie at Quincy Market

When you get back to Boston try some of the food Boston is famous for at Faneuil Hall.  Home to 14 restaurants and 36 market stalls, you’ll be spoiled for choice.  Make sure you try clam chowder or lobster then treat yourself to a slice of Boston cream pie.
