The Histrionic Academy follows the enduring footprints of America's first steps, bringing to life the iconic men, women, and events that helped forge the United States into existence during the Revolutionary era. Throughout the extended, 90-minute Tour the Freedom Trail walking tour, groups weave across the first 1.2 miles of Boston's Freedom Trail behind the proverbial torches held by guides dressed in colonial garb. Up to 16 of the city's historical landmarks along the tour's route act as links to the past, enabling tour takers to see the actual locations where Paul Revere famously hung out and memorized the horse alphabet. In addition to Freedom Trail adventures, The Histrionic Academy also swings open its vault of knowledge during school field trips and a variety of other tours. The Plymouth Night tour raises hairs by shuffling visitors through haunted locales beneath the eerie glow of the moon while hunting for ghosts and ghouls in their paranormal hangouts, learning about the dark shadows cast by the city on a hill and the proper safety gear needed for attempting to climb to the moral high ground. The Salem's 1692 tour relives the hysteria of witch hunts by sailing through city streets atop gas-powered brooms.

Gray-hulled naval ships sit stoically by weathered docks, as sailboats and yachts dart to and fro in graceful traffic. The tide ebbs and flows around islands, piers, and against harbor walls under the Boston skyline. Hestia Cruises' four ships glide among this nautical throng, carving wakes across the busy waters on seasonal cruises in the morning, afternoon, at sunset, or under the light of the moon. As the classic 1948 motor yacht Full Moon rumbles through the water, on-board tour guides divulge facts about harbor history and point out ideal landmarks to photograph. The ship's open decks host passengers for sightseeing tours, and its staff also guides morning cruises with massage services or yoga classes, evening voyages with wine and whiskey tastings, and photo-shoot cruises. Captains also ferry visitors past harbor sights on an EPA-acclaimed private catamaran or the 32-foot Catalina sailboat Hestia, where passengers can help pull lines, unfurl the main sail, and make a mix-tape of sea shanties. They also pilot a rigid inflatable boat—built to Navy Seal specifications—for adventures to far ends of the harbor at speeds of up to 40 miles per hour. The speedy craft lies low to the water, letting passengers feel the harbor's salty spray while hunched securely on saddle-style jockey seats.

RIB Adventure Tours conduct informative history tours and scavenger hunts around Baltimore Harbor, even when the horizon becomes a blur; all tours take place aboard 26-foot-long rigid, inflatable speedboats. Built to Navy SEAL specifications by a local Massachusetts boat manufacturer, the boats keep riders secure aboard jockey seats. On guided history tours, passengers snag high-speed glimpses of harbor landmarks including lighthouses and forts, whose history guides can expound upon. During scavenger hunts, guides prompt passengers to look for environmental clues and give individual scores. Captains and tour guides brief passengers on safety before all excursions and supply them with high-grade waterproof cameras to take pictures of passing scenery. More relaxed cruises from partner Hestia Cruises, onboard the 32-foot sailing yacht Hestia, might drift past the USS Constitution or out into the outer harbor. The ship is manned by a captain, a full crew, and friendly cocker spaniel named Ensign. Guests can help with the sailing duties, but padded seats and a BYOB policy for those of age may encourage them to sit back and relax.

City Golf's managing owner and head golf professional, Gary Parker, brings a Class A PGA certification and more than two decades of teaching experience to City Golf, earning him Boston magazine's Best Golf Pro in 2007. Gary and his team of PGA-certified aces preside over year-round golfing activities inside City Golf Walpole and City Golf Boston's studios and their modern golf-training facilities, including a brand new downtown Boston location. Pros tailor instruction to individuals during lessons to help straighten out swings with the assistance of Dartfish video swing analysis, which reveals every ill-timed motion, errant clubface position, and argyle-clad poltergeist affecting each shot. A virtual-reality simulator recreates the environments of more than 30 legendary courses, and a 280-square-foot putting green challengers players' ability to read breaking greens. A fourth location in Brighton is set to open in September of 2013. The 5,500 square foot state-of-the-art facility will include four virtual golf simulators, an indoor driving range, a 2,000 square foot putting green, and teaching areas hosting PGA video lessons.

Ecco Restaurant and Martini Bar's staff matches wines and specialty martinis with culinary counterparts drawn from a menu of Italian-inspired steak, seafood, and pasta. Suggested wine pairings help servers increase flavor synergy, enhancing the lobster mac 'n' cheese?s fontina cheese and buttery crumbs with a sauvignon blanc hailing from New Zealand. They also embellish meals or stories about their last fishing expedition with the wildflower martini, a blend of Absolut wild tea vodka, St. Germain, ginger, and lemon juice. Situated less than a five-minute drive from Logan Airport, Ecco Restaurant and Martini Bar houses a geometrically diverse dining room crowded with rectangular and circular leather booths. A signature wall scribbled with autographs reveals the John Hancocks of the restaurant?s myriad guests, and artistic clusters of light bulbs spread warmth across orange couches and exposed brick. The seasonal outdoor patio provides a nice spot to enjoy a leisurely weekend brunch or a romantic dinner under the stars.

A medley of traditional American cuisine and German tastes has brightened Jacob Wirth, the second oldest restaurant in Boston, since 1868. The kitchen prepares a smattering of traditional offerings, such as paper-thin-sliced pastrami piled high between slabs of sourdough bread, and five types of wursts crowned with red cabbage or sauerkraut. Surrounded by traditional steins and thirsty gnomes, barkeeps pour an extensive selection of imported and domestic beer from tap and bottles. On Friday evenings, Jacob Wirth hosts pianist Mel Stiller, a Boston mainstay whose sing-along show has attendees humming and shouting along to hits such as ?Build Me Up Buttercup? and ?Folsom Prison Blues.? Jacob Wirth?s location within the Theater District makes it a premier spot for a preshow dinner before heading off to watch Mary Poppins 2: Spoonful of Revenge.
