TheTrail Freedom Trail
A walk along the two-and-a-half-mile Freedom Trail is one of the best ways to get acquainted with Boston and to efficiently visit the city’s bounty of historic landmarks. If you’re in a hurry and in pretty good shape, you can cover the length of the trail in as little as an hour, but that won’t really allow you the time to stop and visit any of the sites along the way. Your best bet is to allow three hours or more to walk the trail at a leisurely pace and see all of its Revolutionary landmarks.
Sam Adams Brewery
These days, Samuel Adams is known as much for being a brewer as a Patriot. Tour the Sam Adams Brewery in the Jamaica Plain neighborhood of Boston for a glimpse at the microbrewery’s beer-making process and a sample of the finished product. The brewery is also home to the Boston Beer Museum.
On a sunshine-filled summer afternoon, there is perhaps no better place to be in all of New England than Fenway Park, historic home of Major League Baseball’s Boston Red Sox. Baseball fans have been energized and agonized by the exploits of some of baseball’s greatest players at Fenway since 1912. If you can’t score tickets to a Red Sox game, look into behind the scenes tours of Fenway Park.
Boston Museum Of Science
Boston’s museums are as good as any you’ll find in the world, and the most visited one is the Museum of Science at Science Park. It has more than 400 interactive exhibits including my favorite–the Virtual Fish Tank, an IMAX theater and a planetarium. Take the kids!
