Tour the State House
Those local to Massachusetts can probably skip this one as the State House tour was a seemingly mandatory field trip for many elementary schools. But if you haven’t seen the inside of the Massachusetts State House, it is definitely worth the free 45-minute tour. The ‘new’ State House has been in operation since 1798 and was considered – and still is – to be one of the most magnificent buildings in Boston. You’ll be able to see the inside of the famous gold dome (originally covered by Paul Revere & Sons) and marble-floored halls lined with portraits of Massachusetts politicians. If you’d like to see the Old State House, that is right down the street, but admission is $10.
