Bostonians Behaving Badly Walking Tour
Get in touch with your inner rebel and experience a most riotous tour through four centuries of protests, social violence and at times downright bad behavior. Known for the protests of the Stamp Act and Boston Tea Party, rebellions and uprisings took place throughout Boston's history. There's no city more riotous than Boston.
We'll examine many of the lesser known riots and street violence often fueled by the powerless who sought a voice over social, political, religious, and economic oppression. Whatever your frustration, we have a riot for you. From the Boston Bread Riots to the burning of the Ursuline Convent, we'll explore the explosive displays of discontent by groups of people who took their grievances, and at times paranoia, to the streets. We'll ride the buses of conflict and resentment away from Commodore Knowles' impressments toward a good old-fashioned Boston Brothel Riot.
Get your riot gear and join our mob mentality through the streets of Boston on this tour through anger, fear, rebellion, violence, and bad behavior.
Torches and effigies optional.
