See the best of Boston on a whirlwind tour
...that takes you to Quincy Market, the North End, Harvard Yard, Fenway Park, Chinatown, Boston Common, Beacon Hill, and many other colorful neighborhoods, historic sites, TV and movie locations, and more. You can take on the city by limo or via the T (the mass transit system).
You’ll search for answers to such questions as...
• At the Bull & Finch Pub, whose exterior is known to TV viewers as the Cheers bar, Norm stands before the name of one of his “best friends,” Sam. What other two pals’ names are written here? Answer: Molsen Golden and Bud, on a sign behind Cheers’ beer-loving Norm (George Wendt), which lists those beers and Sam Adams (no, not Sam Malone).
• Make way for ducklings and visit the Boston Commons. Nearby, off Charles, what executioner was killed in 1876? The great elm, a bygone execution site, mentioned on a sign near the Commons entrance across from the “Make Way for Ducklings” statue in the Public Garden.
• Find people who are traveling 26 miles to visit Mr. Copley. Complete this sequence: brook, hop, ash, _______. “Framing,” as in Brookline, Hopkinton, Ashland, and Framingham, seen on a map of the marathon route near the statue of Copley in Copley Square.
Please note that we left out some hints and directions from those questions (after all, we don’t what you to have too much of an advantage over the other teams, right?). During the journey from point to point, you’ll also have to tackle ten trivia questions—but you can use any resource to answer them.
We recommend doing a three-hour version of this hunt, although longer and shorter versions are available. If you like, we can add Team Photo Challenges for additional fun and souvenirs. An International Edition is also available, for people whose first language is not English.
