Labor Day Weekend in Boston
"If you’re visiting during the Boston Labor Day Weekend, don’t forget to include the Old Town Trolley Tour in your itinerary."

Residents of Boston typically flee the city during the Labor Day Weekend to Cape Cod and Martha’s Vineyard for the last holiday celebration of the summer. This makes it a great time for vacationers to visit Boston with less traffic and easier access to the attractions. Check out some of the Boston Labor Day Events:

Boston Tea Party Ships & Museum
Congress Street Bridge
Relive the single most important event leading up to the American Revolution in 1773. Interact with colonial participants from the Boston Tea Party, explore the historically restored tall ships, and experience a holographic encounter with the “Let It Begin Here” movie presentation. Learn more about our Boston Attractions Ticket Packages.

Ghosts & Gravestones Haunted Tour
All Weekend
Explore the haunted past of Boston before the Halloween crowds start up. See some of the city’s spookiest sites, including the Omni Parker House, King’s Chapel Burying Ground and much more. Climb aboard the Trolley of the Doomed for a chilling “frightseeing” tour you’ll never forget. Tours depart nightly from 7pm – 9pm.

PGA TOUR Deutsche Bank Championship
Friday thru Monday of Labor Day Weekend
TPC Boston Norton, MA

Follow the Top 100 PGA Tour Players in the second round of the Fed Ex Cup Playoffs at the Deutsche Bank Championship. About 40 miles outside the city you can catch some of the greatest golfers in the world compete for a chance to move on to the third round of the playoffs and their chance at an $8 million prize.

Old Town Trolley Tours of Boston has provided vacation guests and locals with more than 20 years of historic tours, news, and events. Each month the Trolley Team publishes upcoming events in Boston for visitors and residents to enjoy.

If you’re visiting during the Boston Labor Day Weekend, don’t forget to include the Old Town Trolley Tour in your itinerary. The best way to visit all the Boston attractions and historic sites in one weekend is to hop aboard Old Town Trolley when you arrive and see the best sites first. This allows you to plan your vacation around the activities that interest you and your family the most. You can hop on and off at your leisure.

If you are a Boston resident, take advantage of the Old Town Trolley Tours Hometown Pass program. After your registration is verified, you will receive free admission to the historic Boston Tour each time you bring a full paying adult guest. Learn more about the Hometown Pass today.
