    The docents in this museum are very knowledgeable and this was well-worth $5.00. Debunks some common myths about Revere and adds an interesting plot twist (or 2) to the story.  more »

    It just reeks of nostalgia and history. A must when walking though the best City in the US. Do the freedom trail, stop by all the churches, do the Harbor walk, eat at James Hook and Company or the bar...  more »

    First of all, it is only $5 or $6. Seriously. A serving of ice cream at Quincy Market costs more than that. When you buy your ticket, they tell you it is self-guided. But there are some very knowledga...  more »

    This was a well-spent $5. I had some time after breakfast in the North End, so I walked by the Paul Revere House to see if I'd like to tour it. There aren't any guided tours, however, there are tour guides on the first and second floors of the house to add commentary and answer questions. I enjoyed making it self-paced. It's like a "shot of history" - 15 minutes and you're done. I recommend!

    Nice, but quite small exhibit. Good info on his life in the house and businesses in the building next door that shares the courtyard. Good air-conditioning. An easy and enjoyable stop on the freedom trail.

    This was a really great example of architecture from the 1600s. It's pretty small, but it was definitely worth the $3 entrance price. It only takes about a maximum of 30 minutes to walk through. Stop in here if you are doing the freedom trail!

    Nice historical site. My only gripe is they prohibit pictures... including non-flash. I could understand no flash devices, but this should be open to pics. House is located in Italian district. Go try Mikes Pastries afterward.

Where to stay in Boston

To stay close to where most of Boston's tourist action is, book a room at one of the many hotels located downtown, near the center of the city and state governments, businesses, and shopping. For a more affordable option, consider a budget-friendly boutique hotel or small bed and breakfast in one of the city's diverse residential neighborhoods. If you plan to stay longer and need a real home away from home, explore Boston's short-term rental options, which include private villas, waterfront lofts, and luxury apartments scattered across the city's historical districts.
