Just the most amazing thing for an American History nerd, born to an even bigger American History nerd!!!
DH and I did that when we went 8 or so years ago. It was a lot of fun We also saw the Constitution and ate in a couple different Italian restaurants in the North End - that was the first time I had lobster ravioli - absolutely fell in love.

We went to Salem, too, and really enjoyed it. We stumbled on a re-creation of a witch trial, which was very interesting, and the dungeon was pretty spooky. Nice town.

The red line history tour was great. We did it last year with the kids on a hot summer day ( wish it were spring or fall). Took u throughout boston, the whole paul revere things ....

Also did the plimout plantation which was like stepping back a few hundred years.

These are great suggestions. We are already seeing some of the things suggested, Plimouth Plantation, the sightseeing bus tour, Bunker Hill, North End etc. but seeing Salem is something we'd enjoy. I've made a note of several suggestions and funny thing, several people I've talked to have strongly suggested Durgin Park, but the agents have already selected the Union Oyster House.
Keep the suggestions coming. And thanks again for the responses.

You'll enjoy the Union Oyster House. Ask to see the booth where President Kennedy spent Sunday mornings.

Union Oyster House is wonderful, too. Excellent food and architecture. Much better clam chowder than Durgin Park.
