Hop on and off the Boston trolley for iconic sights

Boston Trolley - Accent On Travel

Grab your map and take a one-day, whistle-stop tour of all the highlights in Boston and lose yourself in this vibrant, colorful city by taking the Boston Trolley. Hop on and off to make the most of your time, visiting the Boston Tea Party Ships & Museum as well as allowing yourself some retail therapy at the Copley Place Mall, which features high-end fashion brands. Hear more humorous and enlightening stories as the conductor narrates your ride through the capital of Massachusetts.


Marvel at the exhibits in the Maine Lighthouse Museum

Follow in historic footsteps on the freedom trail

Freedom Trail in Boston - Accent On Travel

Take in over 250 years of history as you stroll the iconic freedom trail, a winding, 2.5-mile walk that explores 16 nationally significant sights.
