After meeting on the steps of the Massachusetts State House on Beacon Street, groups follow guides past major landmarks and historical sites filled with Kennedy family lore, including the Omni Parker House, where Kennedy announced he was running for Congress and where he proposed to Jackie, and Faneuil Hall, where he gave the last speech of his Presidential campaign. Tours follow a one-mile route, last 90 minutes, and depart at 10:30 a.m. every Saturday from April 9 through July 2.

The Kennedy Tour

The Massachusetts State House. The Omni Parker House Hotel. Faneuil Hall. While each of these buildings boasts its own rich personal history, they are collectively linked by a far greater shared honor—each one played a role in the political odyssey of President John F. Kennedy. While The Kennedy Tour explores the scope of the former President's political career, it also tells a story that begins even earlier, investigating the origin of the city's Irish political machine and the political lives of John Kennedy's grandfathers P.J. Kennedy and John F. Fitzgerald through the architecture that they left behind. Starting from Boston Common, tour guides trace a one-mile route down Beacon Street and Congress Avenue. Along the way, they weave the tale of JFK’s ascent, explaining how he announced his 1946 run for Congress at the Omni Parker House; how he defeated rival Henry Cabot Lodge, Jr. from his seat in the Senate Headquarters in Post Office Square; and how many times he blinked during his final 1960 presidential campaign speech under the soaring ceilings of Faneuil Hall.
