4. The Revere House: In 1775, Paul Revere set out on the journey that would one day make him famous. Before this venture, he inhabited a small wooden house that still stands in Boston as a historical landmark. Being the oldest building in downtown Boston, Revere's great grandson purchased the building to protect it from being demolished. Because of this and some external funding, the Revere House was able to open its doors to the public as one of America's first historical residential museums. To learn more, click here.
5. Bunker Hill Monument: This 221ft tall monument commemorates the Battle of Bunker Hill as it was built atop the field where combat ensued. What makes this monument particularly interesting is that it took 17 years to construct. For more info, click here.

Best Travel Hacks
1. Use an ATM to get access to the local currency instead of using the currency exchange
The fees charged by your bank when travelling to the US or overseas are typically cheaper than those offered to you by currency exchange bureaus.
2. Invest in a portable charger.
Even though our buses are equipped with outlets, you never know when you might run out of juice on-the-go. Pack a portable charger and bring cables for your phone, camera, or other electronics you want to bring on longer excursions. Don't forget to charge the unit itself overnight before your trip!
3. Only unpack what you really need.
Upon arriving at your hotel, skip the part where you unpack all your luggage. Odds are you over-packed and won't use everything you brought with you. If you only unpack necessities then you're less likely to forget something behind when you leave.
4. Make a shopping list for souvenirs.
If you're prone to impulse buys or dishing out cash for extra keychains, mugs, and magnets to keep around the house as spare gifts, make a list of who you want to shop for and stick to it.
5. Pack a pashmina.
A pashmina is the most versatile piece of clothing and saves space in your luggage. Use it as a blanket, a shawl or scarf, or an emergency towel. The beauty of a great pashmina gives a modern spin to what Hitchiker's Guide to the Galaxy has been telling us all along.

Rather than simply producing milk and cheese, the pair sought to separate themselves and their products from the rest so they began making artisan food and beauty products. Today at Haute Goat you can purchase all of the items listed above. If you want to get your hands on some then join us on June 6th, 2020 for a 1-day bus tour to Haute Goat Farm from Toronto.
