Kennedy Cultural Walking Tour
It's hard to imagine that John F. Kennedy, the epitome of endless youth, would be 100 years old this year (2017)! Fifty-four years after his passing, memories of JFK still burn brightly, and Boston's native son remains one of the country's most beloved presidents. Boston is so closely related to the Kennedys, that anyone wanting to relive the days of Camelot can still find plenty of JFK's old haunts around his hometown.
The streets of Boston are jam packed with history, and since its founding in 1630, countless Americans have left their marks on these historic cobblestone streets. However, there is no Bostonian name more known throughout America and the world than Kennedy. This tour walks in the path of America's 35th President and visits some John F. Kennedy’s favorite spots. You will see some of the places where JFK and the rest of the Kennedy Clan worked, dined and called home. From Rose Kennedy’s childhood home to JFK last residence, this tour will introduce you to these sites on a leisurely stroll through Kenndy's Boston.
The Massachusetts State House, the Omni Parker House Hotel and Faneuil Hall. While each of these buildings boasts its own rich personal history, they are collectively linked by a far greater shared honor as each one played a role in the political odyssey of President John F. Kennedy. While this tour explores the scope of the former President's political career, it also tells a story that begins even earlier, investigating the origin of the city's Irish political machine and the political lives of John Kennedy's grandfathers P.J. Kennedy and John F. Fitzgerald through the architecture that they left behind. Starting from St. Stephen's Catholic Church, this fun tour traces a 1.5-mile route throught the heart of Boston. Learn about John F. Kennedy’s rise to power, from his the Omni Parker House, where JFK is said to have made his first public speech when he was seven years old, where he announced his bid for Congress and proposed to Jacqueline Bouvier to how he defeated rival Henry Cabot Lodge, Jr. from his seat in the Senate Headquarters in Post Office Square to his final 1960 presidential campaign speech in Faneuil Hall.
