There are tours that take you to historical destinations, and then there are tours that take place on them. Consider tours aboard the Joseph S. Kennedy UB85 a little of both. This 50-foot Navy utility boat was built in 1985 and was assigned to the Aircraft Carrier U.S.S. Roosevelt. Today, it charters passengers to historical sites such as the Charlestown Navy Yard, site of the U.S.S. Constitution and the World War II destroyer U.S.S. Cassin Young. The boat also ferries guests to one of the National Park Harbor Islands, where history and modern day converge in the form of festivals and events. On George Island, for example, passengers will find beer tastings and weekly recreations of Civil War-era baseball games, complete with original uniforms, original rules, and instant replays performed by actors.

Butter, sugar, and flour. These three simple ingredients form the basis of each treat cooked up at Oakleaf Cakes. While the ingredients are straightforward, the cakes are anything but, as proven by head baker Amanda Oakleaf and the 4-foot-tall Dora the Explorer cake she constructed on the Food Network’s Cake Challenge. At her shop, Amanda and her team of artists, sculptors, and bakers create treats that run the gamut in flavor and function, from elegant tiers of red velvet to sugary cartoon figurines placed atop marshmallow fondant. Guests can dream up flavor combinations such as gingerbread cake slathered in white-chocolate buttercream or chocolate samoa layered in honey icing, or offer up a 3-D object for Amanda and her team to re-create in meticulous, edible detail. Regularly scheduled cake-decorating classes impart visitors with some of the team’s creative tricks of the trade, such as leveling cakes and keeping schoolchildren from swarming in through the doggy door at the sight of snickerdoodle cupcakes.

The bakery's from-scratch approach extends to the attached café, as well. Rather than keeping coffee warm throughout the day, staffers ground and brew each cup to order, using custom-roasted Barrington Coffee beans and an Aeropress. This cutting-edge brewing method is designed to extract exactly enough flavor from the beans to create the best brew possible, and achieves it in less than two minutes. Each sultry cup of joe perfectly complements the bakery's wide assortment of baked goods, which range from classic cupcakes, cookies, and muffins to wholly unique goodies including made-from-scratch pop tarts, artisanal marshmallows, and miniature cheesecakes.

At Fit Lifestyle Studios and Move Fitness, dedicated instructors impart knowledge during spinning, Pilates, dance, and other group fitness classes to shed pounds and improve cardiovascular health. During spinning classes, a small class size of no more than 18 students ensures individual attention from the instructors, who have all received certification from Mad Dogg Athletics. Students of all levels may attend spinning classes with full water bottles in hand, sparing them the trouble of biking to nearby creeks or fire stations. To get the most out of each 45-minute class, students are encouraged to arrive 10 minutes early to meet and greet their stationary steed.

When you step into the colorful crossfire at Boston Paintball, you'll be armed with its basic rental package of paintball equipment and 200 rounds of ammunition. Equipment provided by this package is a Tippmann 98 Custom paintball gun, a full-face goggle system, and unlimited air fills—a lust for bruises and welts on the skins of one's enemies is not included. With artillery and ammunition in hand, Boston Paintball guests can take to the 50,000-square-foot Everett Indoor Field, claimed by Boston Paintball to be the largest indoor paintball field in New England. As the air at Everett Indoor Field erupts in a frenzy of pigmentation, paintballers will duck, dodge, and commando-crawl from obstacle to obstacle, seeking a sheltered spot where they can unleash a vibrantly hued H, E, and a couple of hockey sticks upon combatants.

Kickboxing classes deliver a knee to the face of fat, burning up to 860 calories an hour with the high-energy striking moves of martial arts and boxing. All four limbs get in on the bag-bludgeoning action at iLoveKickboxing as each class provides a full-body workout that tones arm, leg, and tentacle muscles while tightening the body’s core and improving balance. Hitting the heavy bags won't skin your knuckles once you don the included boxing gloves, which also double as excellent spring-loaded props for re-creating Three Stooges gags. Class times and dates vary based on location.
