Since cheetah shoes don't yet exist and a tree stump with a saddle on it is hopelessly immobile, trolleys remain among the best ways to tour a city. Take a seat or take a stroll with today's open-ended, touriffic Groupon: for $20, you get an 18-stop trolley tour (a $34.20 advance value or a $38 value at the trolley) from Old Town Trolley Tours.
Operating daily from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the winter, the cozy, heated trolleys at Old Town Trolley Tours pick up and drop off riders at 18 stops throughout the city. Riders can hop on and hop off at their leisure, with trolleys frequenting stops every 15–20 minutes. With ticket in hand, trolley riders will also receive a well-stacked coupon card and free admission to Boston's oldest surviving public building, the Old State House Museum, which has outlived both gravity and Washington's wooden molars. Other stops include the New England Aquarium, the Boston Skywalk Observatory, Fenway Park and the Boston Children’s Museum.
