Boston National Historical Park

Much of Boston's historic downtown area is now part of the Boston National Historical Park, and so the National Parks Service maintains this website and a Visitor Center in historic Faneuil Hall (the old Visitor Center was at 15 State Street, Boston, MA 02109, tel 617-242-5642), open all year 9 am to 5 pm.

Free guided Freedom Trail tours are available in the spring and summer. You'll see park rangers here and there at historic spots, ready to help with directions or information.

Boston Common Visitor Information Center

On Boston Common (Green Line or Red Line to Park Street Station), at 147 Tremont Street, Boston 02116 (map) (tel 617-536-4100, or toll-free 888-SEE-BOSTON [888-733-2678]), at the intersection of Tremont and Winter Streets just a few steps from the MBTA Park Street station.

It's open year round from 8:30 am to 5 pm (Sunday 10 am to 6 pm).

Come here to get maps and booklets describing the Freedom Trail and other visitor information.

One neat webpage, so you'll have to do some digging.
My personal recommendation--go to the Topsfield Fair in the fall. I think it's the oldest or something like that. Loads of fun, including 4H exhibits.
