School trips to Boston
Rich in history and architecturally grand, Boston offers educational opportunities in buckets. One of America's oldest cities, it was founded by freedom-seeking Puritans back in 1630 and four centuries later, is still a centre for cultural and social change.
Visit the Tea Party Ships, which moored on the ocean alongside a spanking new museum provide a colourful insight into the protest against a British tax on tea - a key event in the American revolution, or go to the Peabody Museum of Archaeology & Ethnology and follow the history of the North American Indian.
Not that it's all about the past. You can give students a thrill with a high-speed catamaran trip to watch humpback, finback, and minke whales frolic in the Atlantic at Stellwagen Bank, or take a trip to Fenway Park, the USA's oldest baseball park, to watch the Red Sox play.

Paul Revere House
On the night of April 18, 1775, silversmith Paul Revere left his small wooden home in Boston's North End and set out on a journey that would make him into a legend. Today that home is still standing at 19 North Square and has become a national historic landmark.

Serving as a reminder and educational voice of USS Constitution, this museum collects, preserves and interprets the stories of "Old Ironsides" and the people associated with her. The Museum ensures that the stories of USS Constitution and those who shaped her history are never forgotten, always remain relevant, and inspire as many people as possible.
