The Secrets of Old Boston Scavenger Hunt for Kids

Set the time machine for 1776

Kids and adults work together to explore the Freedom Trail on a fun, funny, informative scavenger hunt along the Freedom Trail in downtown Boston. On teams, you’ll search for a “strong man” in Faneuil Hall, enormous fruit in Quincy Hall, a giant’s teakettle, Mother Goose’s flock in a historic cemetery, a woman who inspired The Scarlet Letter, a place where Ben Franklin got dunked, enemy animals at the site of the Boston Massacre, and more.

You don’t need to know anything about the Freedom Trail or Boston to play and to win… but you and your group will know a whole lot about them by the time you’re done.

The perfect combo: Old Boston and young hunters

This is a great activity for bringing together adults and kids—and for getting them to work together, have a blast, and learn a little something along the way. It’s perfect for school field trips in Boston, birthday parties, scout-troop or summer-camp outings, tourist groups, you name it.

Recommended for ages 7 and up. Each team must include at least one adult.

What delighted teachers are saying

“I have taken students from my high school to four Watson Adventures hunts. Each time, the students have had a wonderful experience. The enthusiasm I have seen, and the teamwork that has been displayed, has been thrilling for me as an educator. My job is to keep students engaged, and Watson Adventures does that with ease. Not only are the students doing something fun—they don’t even realize how much they are learning in the process.”
