Thank you very much, Amy! I am beyond fortunate to have the historic landmarks of the Freedom Trail as a backdrop—it's an incredible outdoor classroom! It's great you enjoyed the additional visuals, to better engage with the (rather rebellious) residents of Old Boston.

Thank you, John, for joining on a full-day private tour of the Freedom Trail, from start to finish. I'm pleased to hear you also enjoyed our 3-course lunch at the Chart House—it's always fun to dine inside John Hancock's personal Counting House!

Thank you, Danelle! As a U.S. History major who's worked for multiple museums and historic landmarks in Boston, I certainly think good history lessons should be anything but boring—I'm so happy your family agreed!

The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with

one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston
Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling
statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the

children and eager tourists through the pond. Have
