ORA in Boston – Excursions

The ORA summer school in Boston offers students the chance to explore the local area through organised excursions, including to downtown Boston.

Cambridge Walking Tour

Situated along the iconic Charles River, which separates it from downtown Boston, Cambridge MA advertises itself as ”a city where counter-culture still lives, classic culture thrives, and multicultural is a way of life”. Students will be guided around the major sites of Cambridge during the Walking Tour excursion within the first few days of the programme, so they can find their perfect spots for relaxation, shopping or having a coffee during the rest of the course.

Boston Tour

During the Boston excursion, students will be able to explore the many attractions of downtown Boston. Some of the most famous sites include Fenway Park, home to the famous Boston Red Sox; Boston Common, the oldest city park in the United States; the Museum of Science, a must-see with over 700 interactive exhibits; the John F. Kennedy Museum and Library; and the Massachusetts State House, the state capitol. For those looking for something a little more quirky, the Quincy Market has plenty of delicious items on offer, while Captain Jackson’s Historic Chocolate Shop offers a taste of Revolution-era American chocolate.

Charles River Tour

A well-known classic for visitors to Cambridge, students will take a trip on the Charles River with the iconic Charles Riverboat Company, which has been operating since 1900. Offering a new view on the city of Cambridge, students will see the Charles River Basin and Boston Harbour while learning about key events in Cambridge’s history.

(Please note that these are example excursions, which may change from year to year and vary according to age group.)
