Our trip to Iceland took us through Boston. I couldn’t resist adding on a few days to really explore. Our first stop in Boston was to the Boston Tea Party Museum (with a quick stop in Boston favorite, Dunkin Donuts). We were immediately given new identities & let through an interactive tour, complete with period actors who really make you feel like you were in the middle of the excitement! Besides the food, which was my real favorite thing about Boston, this museum tops my recommendation list of things to not miss in Boston! It was so much fun and a great, interactive way to experience history.
