Itinerary

Day 1: FRIDAY, DECEMBER 6, 2019 – Welcome to Boston! Transfer from Logan International Airport to your hotel, where you’ll be staying for the next two nights. After check-in, the afternoon is yours at leisure. Perhaps you will want to explore Boston’s iconic Back Bay, filled with shopping and entertainment possibilities!

Day 2: SATURDAY, DECEMBER 7, 2019 – After breakfast, meet your local Boston guide and kick off the holiday celebration! Touring today starts with the Freedom Trail, a 2.5-mile route that leads you to numerous historically significant sites — each one an authentic treasure. Stroll through the North End, one of Boston’s oldest and most historic neighborhoods, and pass by the Paul Revere House, where the legendary patriot Paul Revere began the famous “Midnight Ride.” Enjoy lunch on your own during a stop at Quincy Market. For over 250 years the marketplace has played an integral role in the life of Boston’s residents. Decorated for the holidays, Quincy Market will wow you with roaming performers, outstanding shopping and delicious treats! After lunch, drive by Faneuil Hall, the Old State House, King’s Chapel, Boston Common and the Public Garden, Beacon Hill and more. This evening, enjoy a delicious lobster dinner, then top the evening off with a New England holiday must-see — the Boston Pops Holiday Concert at Symphony Hall!

Be prepared for breathtaking views of the Atlantic Ocean as you take self-guided headset tours of Marble House and The Breakers Mansion.

Inside, you will find thousands of poinsettias, evergreens and wreaths, as well as decorated Christmas trees reflecting each individual mansion’s style.
