Full description
Begin your journey in Boston and travel past the prestigious universities, M.I.T. and Harvard, located just across the river in Cambridge. View Cambridge Common, where George Washington took command of the Continental Arm, and drive along "Tory Row", past the home of Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. Traveling through the historic countryside towns of Belmont and Lexington, you can follow the route of Paul Revere and William Dawes as they risked it all to warn the colonials that the "British are coming!"

Stand on Lexington Green, where the 77 Minutemen stood their ground against 700 of England's finest regulars, signalling the start of the American Revolutionary War. View the homes of renowned authors Hawthorne, Alcott and Emerson before arriving at the North Bridge, where the embattled farmers stood and fired the shot heard 'round the world'.
