If sitting on a bus to see the sights sounds boring to you, hop on a bike and take a spin around the city. Urban AdvenTours is a scenic tour around the city and is led by a knowledgeable and friendly guide. The ride takes about 3 hours, and anyone who can ride a bike can take this tour. It is easy to navigate through the city and the guide allows time for resting and re-hydrating. Each rider gets a bike, helmet and water bottle already filled with ice-cold water. With over seven different types of tours to choose from there is sure to be one to meet your interest. The City View tour is the most popular and takes you around Boston to view historic sites off the beaten path, as well as fun places to visit once the ride is over.

Take a tour of the Freedom Trail and let a guide fill you in on all the history you thought you knew. Over 120 points of interest are discussed and seen in the 90-minute tour. You'll See Granary Burying Ground where three singers of the Declaration of Independence are buried, as well the sites of the Boston massacre, and Paul Revere’s House (to name a few). Wear comfortable shoes because you'll be walking two-thirds of the Freedom Trail. See where the Boston Tea Party took place and learn about the sites and history behind them that led to America’s independence.

The Boston Public Garden is a great place to have a picnic, throw around a football, enjoy time with your loved ones, or simply enjoy the beautiful oasis in the heart of the city. Events are often held in the park, so make sure to ask the hotel you're staying at for the line-up for the coming week. It’s the perfect place to relax and take in the old-world beauty of the city. There's even a roller-rink for the kids to skate in.

Fenway Park is a must see when visiting Boston. The oldest baseball park in the U.S. is home to the Red Sox. Tickets can be very hard to get so be sure to ask the front desk of your hotel if they have any tips. You can also scalp them the day of the game in front of the stadium. It is located right in the city so it’s very easy to get to. If you want to enjoy the thrill of a baseball game and see the “Green Giant” you can only get it here.

A great romantic or family event is the Boston Duck Tours. The tour takes place in a restored World War II amphibious (land or water vehicle) led by ConDUCKtors who narrate the tour. See Bunker Hill, the State House, and then slide into the Charles River for great view of Cambridge and Boston. Be sure to keep a camera handy. The tour is 80 minutes and about 20 minutes is spent in the water. Don’t worry you won’t get wet - the vehicle is completely enclosed, like a car.
Boston’s beer of choice is Samuel Adams, and its brewery is right down the road from Fenway Park. Take the hour-long tour through the brewery and learn about the history behind this beer. The tour is free and starts every 45 minutes. It lasts about an hour and includes a 21oz cup of beer to taste (21 and up only). Learn the Seven Wonders of Sam, how the beer is made, what to look for in a beer, and how Samuel Adams came to be the face on the bottle.
