Boston Tour Overview

The Boston tour on the TripScout mobile app takes you to all the most interesting local spots in the city.

It’s hard to get more American than Boston. From Sam Adams ordering British tea be dumped in the Boston Harbor to Paul Revere’s Midnight Ride, the history of revolution, political descent, and heroic patriotism is on every corner. This old American city is also full of captivating tales, such as the marriage that made the Kennedys such a political powerhouse, a young Benjamin Franklin getting started in his career, and TV’s search for the most ideal American bar. All these fascinating stories make our Boston tour such a fun experience.

Boston’s Revolutionary War History

Boston is at the center of America’s history. The city was founded in 1630 by Puritans from England, and more than one hundred years after its founding, Boston played a pivotal role in the American Revolution. The Boston Massacre, the Boston Tea Party, and the Battle of Bunker Hill—three major events in the War—all took place in Boston. In the time since the United States won its independence from Britain, Boston has transformed into a center for commerce, higher education, and culture.

Boston’s Modern Culture

A lot has changed since Boston’s Puritan founding. Boston—the capital of Massachusetts—has transformed into a thriving community and the 10th largest metropolitan area in the U.S. History is around every corner in Boston, from the Freedom Trail to the many world class Boston museums. Boston’s historic neighborhoods, complete with tree-lined streets and red brick townhouses, are packed with boutiques, cafes, and galleries. Boston’s culinary scene has evolved past clam chowder and lobster rolls—track down an award-winning food truck, drink a pint of craft beer and watch a game with the many Boston sports fanatics, or pull up a chair at any number of the best restaurants in Boston. We will help you experience all this iconic American city has to offer on your Boston tour.
