Date Idea, History, Kid Friendly, Lectures & Conferences, Sports & Active Life
For most of Boston's history, the harbor was the center of the city, and urban life was dominated by sailing ships. Step aboard the schooner, Liberty Clipper, and into that era with experiences recorded by those who lived it: a mother, merchant, sailor, poet, preacher, privateer, diplomat, cabin boy, and others. The cruise follows the paths of ships like the Flying Cloud, Astrea, and Columbia, exploring how their voyages shaped Boston and helped industrialize the country. Under sail, away from sirens and jackhammers, maritime history comes alive.
