Day Trips

Boston’s Tall Ships
Sunday, June 18 at 8:30 AM

Depart from the Bedford Town Hall; near the Police Station on a luxury Silver Fox motor coach. In 2017, the Tall Ships will once again parade into historic Boston Harbor and you’ll be able to view them close up on a narrated sightseeing cruise. This magnificent fleet is featuring Boston’s own U.S.S. Constitution. You’ll actually view “Old Ironsides” and the many Tall ships docked along the Boston harbor as you cruise from Commonwealth Pier. Your vessel, the Provincetown II, is equipped with food and beverage service as well as large decks to view the flotilla. After a visit to Quincy Market and the beautiful Rose Kennedy Greenway, you will return home at 5:00 PM.

Saltbox Kitchen is located in the heart of West Concord Village offering seasonal, globally-inspired dishes featuring fresh produce from Saltbox Farm, also located in Concord. We believe in cooking and eating the freshest, healthiest food grown and made with care by many local farmers and artisans.

The Concord Museum in historic Concord, Massachusetts houses one of the oldest and most treasured collections of Americana in the country. Come visit the gateway to Concord’s remarkable revolutionary and literary history.

We will meet at the Saltbox Kitchen in Concord at 11:00am then off to the museum for a 1:00pm guided tour. You can participate in both the lunch and museum tour or just lunch or just the tour. The cost of the museum tour is $10.00. Please call the COA to reserve your place. At that time you can make you lunch selection and we can tell you the cost of your lunch.


All trips depart from the Bedford Town Hall parking lot in front of the police station unless otherwise noted. 


Many who come to the COA enjoy going on daytrips to historic, cultural, and just plain fun destinations throughout Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Connecticut and Maine. We have been to museums, on cruises, to flower shows, to the symphony and theater, and to the gems of New England's history. Here is a small album of day-trip happy memories.
