Considered the birthplace of America's independence, Boston celebrates the 4th of July in a grand style each year. The city's revolutionary history is a source of pride in these parts and there's no denying the feeling of patriotism that electrifies the city during the holiday.


If you've ever considered taking a student group on a historic tour, this is a week you don't want to miss.


In addition to educational sites, you need to catch the Boston Pops Fireworks Spectacular that takes place on Boston's Esplanade on the Charles River every July 3rd and July 4th.


The historic Hatch Shell features the Boston Pops Esplanade Orchestra as well as special guest performances and a fighter jet flyover. On the 4th, the performance features a finale like no other as the orchestra plays Tchaikovsky's explosive 1812 Overture, ending with drum rolls, cannon fire, and church bells ringing throughout the city before a spectacular fireworks display.
