At a minimum, it’s the best cheat sheet a kid could get on the Revolutionary War — with some good exercise thrown in, to boot. Historic Boston comes alive on the 2.5-mile Freedom Trail walking tour through 16 legendary locations. Visit Paul Revere’s house (downtown’s oldest building), the Boston Massacre site, as well as the locale of the Battle of Bunker Hill — now adorned with a towering obelisk. The guided tours are led by an 18th-century costumed guide, last 90 minutes, and cost $6-$12 (not including admission to some historic sites). A memory to last a lifetime.
