HUBBUB

FÊTE FRANÇAISE

Party with 2,000 fellow Francophiles at the annual Bastille Day block party (refer to listing, page 18) hosted by the French Cultural Center on July 12 from 6–11 p.m. Held on Marlborough Street in the Back Bay between Berkeley and Clarendon streets, this scintillating soirée features French food, drink and even kids activities from 6–8:30 p.m. It all culminates in an alwaysenergetic concert, which this year features a distinct New Orleans flavor courtesy of singer and trumpeter Shamarr Allen and the gypsy swing music of Bon Bon Vivant.

A SLICE OF HEAVEN

For the third year in a row, City Hall Plaza becomes pizza central when the Boston Pizza Festival (refer to listing, page 18) returns July 13 & 14 from noon–8 p.m. Pie slingers from all over New England—and even some from Naples, Italy— bestow slices of their best creations upon festival-goers, who can also enjoy live music and other pizza-centric entertainment. There’s even a pizza tossing station for the kids, so the entire family can get a—wait for it—“pizza” the action.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, U.S.A.!

The events of July 4, 1776 may have freed this country from the tyranny of monarchs, yet that doesn’t mean royalty is unwelcome here—especially if said “royal” is Queen Latifah, this year’s marquee guest at the annual Boston Pops Fireworks Spectacular (refer to listing, page 15) at the DCR Hatch Shell on the Charles River Esplanade on July 4 beginning at 8 p.m. Latifah is joined by Arlo Guthrie and other special guests who accompany the beloved orchestra for this free extravaganza, followed, as usual, by a dazzling pyrotechnic display over the Charles River. —Scott Roberto

Minute Man National Historical Park

The location of the first skirmishes with the Redcoats on April 19, 1775, known formally at the Battles of Lexington and Concord, are preserved at this expansive 900-plus-acre area just to the west of Boston. North Bridge Visitor Center: 174 Liberty St., Concord; Minute Man Visitor Center: Rte. 2A, Lexington; 978-369-6993, nps.gov/mima

PANORAMA

Old State House

Some say the revolution truly began outside the walls of this former seat of the colonial government on March 5, 1770, the date of the infamous Boston Massacre. 206 Washington St., 617-720-1713, bostonhistory.org

Old North Church

Also known as Christ Church, Boston’s oldest house of worship served as a signal tower indicating the movements of British troops on the eve of the opening battle. 193 Salem St., 617-858-8231, oldnorth.com

TOP PHOTO: MASS. OFFICE OF TRAVEL & TOURISM


Faneuil Hall

In the years leading up to open rebellion, fiery speeches decrying unfair taxation by the British authorities reverberated from the rafters of this meeting house and center of commerce. Faneuil Hall Square, 617-242-5642, nps.gov/bost

Old South Meeting House

This former church is famed for hosting the gathering that precipitated the Boston Tea Party. 310 Washington St., 617-482-6439, oldsouthmeetinghouse.org

Paul Revere House

The renowned silversmith, patriot and midnight rider resided along with his family at this North End domicile from 1770–1800. Built circa 1680, the historic edifice is the city’s oldest surviving residence. 19 North Sq., 617-523-2338, paulreverehouse.org

Granary Burying Ground

Boston Massacre victims and revolutionaries Samuel Adams, Robert Treat Paine, James Otis and John Hancock are interred here. 95 Tremont St., 617-635-4505

Copp’s Hill Burying Ground

British soldiers bombarded colonial troops from this site during the Battle of Bunker Hill. 45 Hull St., 617-635-4505

Boston Tea Party Ships & Museum Bunker Hill Monument

Although the Battle of Bunker Hill on June 17, 1775 was lost by the rebels, this granite obelisk on Breed’s Hill (don’t ask) in Charlestown commemorates the tenacious fight put up by colonial forces, who exacted a heavy toll on superior British forces. Monument Square, Charlestown, 617-242-5641, nps.gov/bost

Located on the Fort Point Channel near where the actual event took place on December 16, 1773, this tribute to the most pivotal protest leading up to the American Revolution offers daily reenactments of the quintessential act of dissent. 306 Congress St., 866-955-0667, bostonteapartyship.com

BIENVENUE À BOSTON! Boston, Massachusetts est la ville la plus grande dans la Nouvelle-Angleterre. Fondée en 1630, Boston est l’une des plus anciennes villes des États-Unis et a été la scène de nombreux événements clés pendant la Révolution américaine, la Boston Tea Party, la Chevauchée de Paul Revere et la bataille de Bunker Hill. Pourtant, son histoire est juste une des nombreuses raisons pour lesquelles plus de 19 millions de visiteurs voyagent ici chaque année. Aujourd’hui Boston est connue pour ses collèges et universités de renommée mondiale, des équipements culturels exceptionnels, des institutions médicales supérieurs des industries de haute technologie et de la biotechnologie en plein croissance. La meilleure façon d’explorer Boston est tout simplement de marcher. La ville est souvent dénommée comme une « ville de quartiers », et chacun d’eux a sa propre personnalité distincte mieux découverte à pied. Back Bay, le quartier le plus élégant de Boston, est un charmant mélange d’ancien et de nouveau, le foyer de monuments historiques importants tels que la Bibliothèque Boston Public, Copley Square, la rue branchée Newbury Street, les deux plus hauts bâtiments-200 Clarendon (anciennement la tour John Hancock ) et le Prudential Building - et deux des plus belles artères résidentielles de l’Amérique, Commonwealth Avenue et Marlborough Street. 12
