Grab your sun hats and strap em' on tight, for you are in for some strong breeze! This weekend, tall ships and naval vessels from across the world will be coming to Boston to mark the bicentennial of the War of 1812 and the role of the USS Constitution in the conflict. A fleet of 120 ships have been invited to be in Boston from June 30 to July 6, 2012. This is a great opportunity to get your Boston history fix. Here are just a few things that will be going on:
Boston Tea Party Reenactment Sail $35/24
