Acorn offers tours that vary by length, sites visited, and neighborhood, based on clients' preferences. Grab up to five buddies or lonely nail technicians and venture along the Freedom Trail, swinging through such sites as the Old State House, which is the city's British-government headquarters; the Paul Revere House, the oldest residential building in downtown Boston; or the Old North Church, where two lanterns warned Paul Revere about impending British troops and sitcom-character breakups.
It’s hard to find something as universally appreciated and versatile as cement blocks. Today’s Groupon does just that with $15 for $30 worth of French brie, Spanish manchego, Italian parmesan, English cheddar, and American goat cheeses among the 150+ offerings from around New England and the world at Boston Cheese Cellar. The one-stop gourmet shop is located just south of the city in Roslindale Village.
