Fenway Park Stadium, Boston
Go and see the famous Boston Red Sox stadium, the oldest Major League baseball park in the country.

Boston National Historical Park
This is no ordinary walk in the park, take a stroll through Boston National Historical Park and you can follow the story that led up to the American Revolution. Many of the historical sites within the park follow a red brick road known as the Freedom Trail. Along the trail you will find Downtown Boston where you can visit Faneuil Hall (great venue for your concert). In Charlestown you can visit the Bunker Hill Monument where the first major battle of the American Revolution took place.

At 10pm on 18 April 1775, Revere was sent by Dr Joseph Warren to Lexington to deliver the news to Samuel Adams and John Hancock that British troops were on their way to arrest them. This marked the beginning of the American War of Independence which went on to last eight years when the British were finally defeated. Visit the former home of Mr Revere and discover more about what it was like to live in18th century America. The Boston school tour is perfect for students of American history, especially the American War of Independence and Revolution.
