Enjoy a lovely, scenic drive to the outskirts of Boston. Explore the historic battlefields of Lexington and Concord, where the first military engagements of the American Revolutionary War took place. We'll visit the Lexington Green, where, on the morning of April 19, 1775, "the first blood was spilt in the dispute with Great Britain," as George Washington wrote in his diary.

In Concord, we'll see the Old North Bridge that has recently undergone restoration. This site is most famous as the location where the "shot heard round the world" was fired.

Next, we'll travel towards Cambridge, visiting Harvard Square, and, of course, Harvard University. Stroll along the wonderful tree-lined paths as your guide provides narration on the impressive buildings and history of this Ivy League University. While in Cambridge, we'll also make sure to incorporate a lunch stop at any one of the casual eating options in Harvard Square.

As we return to Boston, we'll pass some of the city's historic sites, including the State House, Boston Common, Beacon Hill, The Custom Building, Faneuil Hall, Quincy Market, Cheers, Bunker Hill, and the USS Constitution, nicknamed "Old Ironsides."

Our final stop will be at the North End, where we'll see the Old North Church...stepping back in time to the night that Paul Revere began his famous ride to Concord warning that "The British are coming!" We'll also pass Paul Revere’s house.

A trip to the North End wouldn't be complete without passing by Mike’s Pastry, famous for Italian pastry of all kinds and one of President Clinton's favorite stops.

In Cozumel we enjoyed the snorkeling that we did off a catamaran. The staff was friendly, very professional, and helpful with my first time snorkeling daughter. Grand Cayman we went to sting ray city with a trip and snorkeling. Staff and trip was amazing, crew very helpful and fun. in Jamaica we did a Dunn's River Falls excursion and private beach. We had fun but were not impressed with the staff, and their timeliness (waited around alot),

Traveling into Russia can be nerve-wracking (and getting more so every day) -- but ShoreTrips made it easy by providing all of the paperwork and instructions, as well as organizing good guides.
