History bursts from nearly every street corner in this city, but the beauty of Boston is that one need not only be a history buff to enjoy all that the area has to offer.

From The Children's Museum to the Franklin Park Zoo, Boston offers a wide array of attractions that will compel both kids and parents. The fact that children might learn something along the way at many of these top picks is just a bonus.

One of the most popular ways to explore Boston is on a Boston Duck Tour or a Super Duck Tour. Every spring, these amphibious vehicles take to the streets and waterways of downtown and have proven to be an extremely popular and unique way to visit many of this city’s historical sights.

This Boston attraction celebrated its 40th birthday in 2009, and is well-known as one of the best aquariums in the country. Take a photo tour of this local landmark.

There is no better way to re-trace the steps of the American Revolution than by visiting Boston’s Freedom Trail, a two-and-a-half mile walking trail that passes by some of the nation’s most historic spots including the Boston Common, the Old North Church, and Bunker Hill Monument.

If you find yourself opening your wallet a bit too frequently, you’re not alone. Boston can be an expensive city.

Boston's Harborfest is a six-day celebration that runs from June 29-July 4, boasting hundreds of family-friendly events that celebrate the city's colonial heritage. The celebration is highlighted by six main events: the Opening Ceremonies, Children's Day, Party on the Plaza, The Extreme Sailing Series, a reenactment of the American Revolution from a British point of view, and the popular Chowderfest.

One of the country's most renowned Independence Day celebrations features a brilliant marriage of music, color, and revelry. As the evening comes to a celebratory close, fireworks light up Boston Harbor in a display that is always memorable.

....after warren dunes, you can veer back south and re join I-90 east, which is the indiana toll road. be sure to drive along
the southern great lakes---lake erie and ontario. lots of War of 1812 historical sites in this area. also, i would check out niagra falls at this time as you'll be going pretty far out of your way on your westbound route thru canada. btw, the canadian side of the falls is the more scenic side. unfortunately, the US side is blighted with rusted out industries (at least it was 10 years ago). fyi, the whole niagra falls area is another tourist trap, but, again, if you could look beyond that and focus on the sheer power and beauty of the river and falls, it's worth it
