Boston Tea Party Ships & Museum - Boston, MA


The term Tea Party may have been hijacked by modern politics, but Boston's out to reclaim it. The newest buzz-maker in living history is winning popular votes in its first summer for its innovative treatment of textbook American history. Visitors step off Congress Street Bridge in Boston and board a ship, where they get a rousing refresher course in Colonial politics and Revolutionary War-era strife. The experience incorporates some Hollywood-style effects, hands-on participation, and as often as possible, the kind of rousing waterborne theatrics that Vegas has employed for 20 years.
