Here is your chance to see Boston up close and personal.
We'll take one of Boston's famous "Duck Boat Tours". This unique guided tour in a duck-shaped vehicle will take us to some of
the city's most iconic and historic sites.
We'll see the nation's oldest commissioned warship, "Old Ironsides," The Bunker Hill Monument, Fenway Park, The Old North Church,
The Boston Common and Public Garden, Copley Square, and so much more. Our excursion won't be limited to dry land as our Duck Boat will float on the water as we cross the Charles River.
After our 90-minute Duck Boat Tour, you will have time to explore the many nearby sites such as Heritage Park and the
Armenian Genocide Memorial, the North End, where a delicious authentic Italian meal is only steps away, Quincy
Market, Faneuil Hall, The Union Oyster House Restaurant, and so much more. There will also be plenty of fine shopping and dining wherever you are.
So join your fellow Knights and Daughters of Vartan in the city where American history
began during this Fourth of July Week. See you on the Duck Boat.
