Length of stay: 2 hour

Op Sail Boston is a collection of tall ships that come in and offer tours of ships. It is a great thing to watch. The girls got to watch 4 Ships sail in. They took their first “T” ride and went to Boston Harbor to watch the ships come in. We watched the ships fire on the island and then the island return fire in mock battle for the 200 year marking of the war of 1812.

The Old North church is made famous by the One if by land and Two if by sea. We walked on part of the Freedom Trail to get to the Old North Church. The girls were questioned about it. Rose remembered but Amelia did not. We got to go inside and hear part of the history of the church and some of the neat things about it. Old North Church is still a functioning church today. THis is a stop along the Freedom Trail
