Date: Saturday, May 4, 2024
Departure: 7:45 AM
Return: 5:00 PM
The John F. Kennedy Library and Museum sits on a 10-acre waterfront park overlooking Boston and the Harbor Islands. The Kennedy Presidential Library is one of thirteen Presidential Libraries in the United States, but the only Presidential Library in New England. The museum walks visitors through President Kennedy’s thousand days in office and brings to light the hope, dreams, accomplishments, and memories of a President who remains highly popular today. At Presidential Libraries, history lives beyond the pages of a textbook or the walls of a classroom.
Join us as we tour the Museum which portrays the life, leadership, and legacy of President Kennedy, conveys his enthusiasm for politics and public service, and illustrates the nature of the office of the President. After our visit, we will proceed to Quincy Market where you can have lunch on your own. You can take time to walk to the nearby North End, home to Boston’s Italian American community; or you can visit Faneuil Hall, a National Historic Site that has remained a site of meetings, protests, and debate for 275 years. Because Revolutionary-era meetings and protests took place so frequently at the hall, successive generations continued to gather at the Hall in their own struggles over the meaning and legacy of American liberty. Abolitionists, women's suffragists, and labor unionists name just the largest of groups who have held protests, meetings, and debates at Faneuil Hall.
Departing from Lizak Bus Service on Main Street in Warren, the excursion will take place rain or shine. Should you decide for any reason that you will not join us, please let us know well in advance. On the morning of the trip, you can call Lizak Bus Service at (413) 436-5262.
