The Freedom Trail is one of Boston’s iconic activities – and you can do it the fun way – a costumed tour! Some key highlights of the Revolutionary War are the home of Paul Revere, Old North Church and the Old State House museum. Follow our weekend getaway guide
to plan the perfect trip. If you’re in the mood for some theater, head to the Theater District to catch a show at the Citi Performing Arts Center or the Orpheum Theatre. If you’re around at the right time, you can attend one of the city’s many annual events - First Night on New Year's Eve, the Boston Arts Festival and the Harborfest activities of Fourth of July. The Charles River fireworks with the Boston Pops Orchestra are a great way to celebrate this holiday! If you time it well, you may be able to catch a game with any of Boston’s four major professional sports leagues – Red Sox, Celtics, Patriots and Bruins. Even if they’re on the road, a trip to Fenway Park could still win you a beer at one of its famous bars. Make a trip to the Boston Public Library to see its many murals or the Institute of Contemporary Art in South Boston for its remarkable architecture, or check out these free events
in the city. Walk along the Esplanade to enjoy a view of sailboats on the river or take a trip to the New England Aquarium, and catch a glimpse of the penguins and hermit crabs that call it home. And once you’re done, a great way to unwind is to get on top to the Prudential Building's Skywalk Observatory to get the ultimate 360-view of Boston. If the idea of a drink with a view sounds appealing, head to one of these rooftop bars
for a sunset cocktail.
