The tea party ship is near the Children's Museum. The site has a museum store where enactors dress in Early Boston. We took a visitor from London to the store to shop for gifts, souvenirs and learn Boston tea party history. The British love tea, you know. Some still have hard feelings about the American tea dump into Boston harbor screaming "No new taxes!"
Leaving the Tea Party store we walked to the North End pizza zone. Ate slices at Pizzaria Regina, then shopped North End bakeries and walked over to Quincy Market and Fanueil Hall. We made our way to Boston Common and on to the starting line of the Boston Marathon in Back Bay when memorials from the Marathon bombing were still present. Our sightseeing chilly-in-March journey had just begun.

Charter Bus info
Motor coach buses for groups come with 30 or 55 seat capacities. For shorter distances and smaller groups consider a comfortable executive van. Private cars and airport transportation is available.
The fully narrated and guided tours are lead by knowledgeable people. I asked a Boston Tea Party Ship enactor "if I was walking towards the Tea Party ship while patriots were getting the tea crates ready to dump, would I see any black people there and what would they be doing." He answered well. My readings of 17th century Black Boston history aligned with what he had to say. That was good. Ask questions like that on your tours and see what happens.
