Boston National Historic Park
Other Ideas: Swan Boats; Faneuil Hall Marketplace; Castle Island and Fort Independence; Louisa May Alcott’s Orchard House - Home of the Alcotts; Boston Haymarket
Boston National Historic Park is an association of sites that together tell the story of the city's role in our nation's history. In downtown Boston, the Old South Meeting House, the Old State House, Faneuil Hall, the Paul Revere House, and the Old North Church bring to life the American ideals of freedom of speech, religion, government, and self-determination.
In Charlestown, visit the Bunker Hill Monument, the site of the first major battle of the AMerican Revolution; the Charlestown Navy Yard, one of the nation's first naval shipyards; and the U.S.S Constitution, the oldest commissioned warship afloat in the world.
Connect the dots with the Freedom Trail, a 2.5-mile walking tour that links additional sites (16 in all) of historic importance in Boston. Just off the trail is Dorchester Heights, site of a turning point in the war when British troops evacuated.

Admission ChargesJust a note that not all the attractions that are part of the Boston Historic Park are free. Some have a small admission fee. I've been to most of them and if you are into the history of America or the colonial period, this is a not to miss group of sites.
