One of the oldest brick buildings in the city and a fine example of early Georgian architecture, this circa 1711 structure, operated by the adjacent Paul Revere House, is open for tours. 29 North Square, 617-523-2338, paulreverehouse.org

Near the heart of Harvard Square on Tory Row—a gorgeous collection of well-preserved Loyalist mansions—is the former home of 19th century poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, which also served as the headquarters for General George Washington during the Siege of Boston from July 1775 to April 1776. The 1759 house is closed for the season, but the grounds are open and group tours can be requested. 105 Brattle St., Cambridge, 617-876-4491, nps.gov/long

Located on the Fort Point Channel near where the iconic protest took place, this site offers two replica ships, artifacts and reenactments with costumed interpreters. Congress Street Bridge, 855-8321773, bostonteapartyship.com

Warren Tavern

Built in 1780 in the aftermath of the burning of Charlestown by the Brits, this is one of the oldest taverns in the area, and even hosted George Washington and Paul Revere back in the day. 2 Pleasant St., Charlestown, 617-241-8142, warrentavern.com

Castle Island

This site located in South Boston at the top of Telegraph Hill is the approximate location from which George Washington’s troops set up an array of captured cannons, thus driving the British out of Boston on March 17, 1776. The white marble monument, completed in 1902, is beautiful to behold, yet is, alas, not accessible to the public. Thomas Park, nps.gov/bost/historyculture/dohe.htm

Boasting a history of military fortification going back to 1634, this popular area—now connected to the mainland—offers sweeping views of Boston Harbor, as well as historic Fort Independence, which is built on the site where British troops were stationed during the revolution at Castle Williams. 2010 Day Blvd., 617-727-5290
