Q: WHAT STOPS SHOULD BE ON EVERY VISITOR’S “BUCKET LIST” WHEN COMING HERE? A: The Boston Pub-

lic Library in Copley Square, Fenway Park, The Freedom Trail, The North End, Museum of Fine Arts ( free every Wednesday from 4-10 pm), and a self-guided tour of Boston’s many pieces of public art—from the Greenway mural in Dewey Square to the new mural at 808 Tremont Street called “Breathe Life 3” to the National Grid gas tank rainbow in Dorchester, there’s something for everyone. Q: BEST UNDER-THE-RADAR SITES OR OFF-THE-BEATENTRACK THINGS TO DO? A: Take the water taxi/

Blue Line over to East Boston and check out Piers Park and the Boston Harbor Shipyard & Marina. There’s lots of great public art there, along with the new ICA Watershed exhibition space as well as KO Pies and Downeast Cider. Q: SOME GOOD SPOTS TO

CAPTURE A GREAT SELFIE? A: The Esplanade at sun-

set (by Night Shift’s Owl’s Nest Beer Garden), or the Harborwalk at Lovejoy Wharf with the Zakim Bridge in the background. There’s also the ever-popular “Boston” sign at City Hall Plaza, adjacent to The Patios and the Bill Russell Statue. Q: BEST PLACES TO TAKE KIDS? A: Definitely the New

England Aquarium (and if you have time, a whale watch), the Boston Harbor Islands and the Museum of Science. Q: FAVORITE LOCAL RESTAURANT(S) FOR A SPECIAL MEAL? A: I like the atmosphere

and cuisine at Alcove. It’s hidden from the street in the Love Joy Wharf building. Another favorite is Monica’s Trattoria in the North End. EXPERT TIP

I would definitely give a shout out to the soon-toopen MassArt Art Museum, set to open next year.

Most people know Boston’s Independence Day celebration is set to music by the Boston Pops—Queen Latifah, Arlo Guthrie and The Texas Tenors add star power to this year’s show—but Boston Harborfest also offers revolutionary experiences around the Hub for a whole week. As the howitzers boom, fireworks soar and thousands celebrate our nation’s birthday, here’s what not to miss. MATT ROBINSON

W

hile the free Pops concert, officially the Boston Pops Fireworks Spectacular, may be the best-known part of the city’s Independence Day festivities, it is only part of Boston Harborfest (www. bostonharborfest.com)—the celebration of the push for independence that began in nearby Lexington and Concord. After taking in the opening ceremonies (and maybe some shopping) July 1 at Faneuil Hall (www.faneuilhallmarketplace. com), stroll the Freedom Trail (www. thefreedomtrail.org) through the restaurant-packed North End to the home of Paul Revere for a 1 pm fife and drum corps performance. Next, head to Old North Church, where Revere’s “midnight ride” began. Admission includes a pioneering photography exhibit, a chance to make your own “one if by land” lanterns, and a historically accurate (and participatory) chocolate tasting. There are also behind-

the-scenes tours of spots that are usually off-limits (www.oldnorth.com). On July 1 and 3, area artists will turn Downtown Crossing (DTX) into a curated arts show (www.artistscrossing.boston). From Mediterranean temptations at BonaPita and saucy Shedd’s BBQ to freshly caught fish at Legal Test Kitchen and patriotic Democracy Brewing (which hosts Mel Stiller’s legendary sing-along piano bar Friday night), DTX is a great place to enjoy local flavors. If you love chowder (say it: “chowdah”), July 2 from noon to 2 pm is Boston’s annual Chowderfest, where guests can sample and vote on versions from local restaurants while enjoying live entertainment, games and interactive activities. That night, Fan Pier is your best bet for viewing festive, illuminated boats at the Parade of Lights & Fireworks, which wraps up with a spectacular fireworks display.

events take place, naturally, along the harbor. In addition to participatory reenactments of the Boston Tea Party (www.bostonteapartyship.com) and gasguzzling rocket rides in Codzilla (www. bostonharborcruises.com/codzilla), the New England Aquarium will offer whale watches (www.neaq.org), and the USS Constitution Museum (www. ussconstitutionmuseum.org) and Boston Harbor Cruises will bring sailors alongside “Old Ironsides,” for the annual turnaround cruise. Ride on Boston’s revolutionary Duck Boats (www.bostonducktours.com), which pick up at the popular Aquarium and Museum of Science (www.mos.org). July 4th begins with a flag-raising ceremony at City Hall Plaza (www. cityhallplazaboston.com) and a parade to the Granary Burial Ground, where such legends as Sam Adams and John Hancock are buried. Retrace the steps of Adams and Ben Franklin on special Independence-themed tours with Boston By Foot (www.bostonbyfoot.org). While thousands flock to the Hatch Shell on the Esplanade for the Boston Pops concert (bostonpopsjuly4th.org), savvy locals know the July 3 rehearsal is just as good (albeit without the fireworks), with far smaller crowds. Locals also know to rely on public transportation to get to events—many roads will be closed and parking is near impossible—and to be prepared to walk. No matter when you come the week of July 4, there will be plenty to see, hear, taste and experience in the birthplace of America’s independence.

FENWAY PARK

Iconic Sights in the City The first time you fly into Boston, over its handsome jumble of islands, bays, rivers and inlets, it’s tricky to pick out the city’s iconic sights unless you know exactly where to look. The visual overload can be disorienting, but once you’re on the ground, a steady procession of signature Boston landmarks quickly takes shape. Mike Hodgkinson A great place to start is the unmistakable dome of the Massachusetts State House, which on blue-sky days glints like a golden nugget in a bowl of walnuts. Although it was built in 1798 by splendidly named architect Charles Bulfinch, more than three-quarters of a century would pass before the gilding was applied to the dome. At the pinnacle sits a wooden pine cone, also gilded. For the storied heights of baseball architecture, head over to Fenway Park, home of the Boston Red Socks since 1912 and enshrined as “America’s Most Beloved Ballpark.” Tours can be booked year round at mlb.com/redsox. Outside the stadium, and visible for miles around is the historic neon Citgo sign, named after the oil company, and locally known as the “See-It-Go” sign after the many home runs that have been launched in its direction. Pretty much every movie set in the city since 2003 has used an aerial shot of the Zakim Bunker Hill Bridge as a great big signpost for Boston, from “Knight and Day” to

“The Departed.” Two giant concrete wishbones strung together like twin steel-cabled harps, the bridge was part of the Big Dig—the most expensive highway construction project ever undertaken in the US. If you’re anywhere near TD Garden, another great sporting landmark, you can’t miss it. On the other side of the river, in Charlestown, two iconic Boston sights share the local skyline: the impressive masts of the USS Constitution (aka Old Ironsides)—the world’s oldest, still floating, commissioned navel vessel—and the Bunker Hill Monument, built to commemorate the first major battle of the Revolutionary War. Both have great museums for all the family; go to ussconstitutionmuseum. org and nps.gov for details.

spent three decades on the thirdfloor murals. No need to check out a book—just marvel at the craftsmanship at every turn. For the best view of the city as a whole, other than the one you saw just before your plane landed, head to the Top of the Hub restaurant (topofthehub.net) on the 52nd floor of the Prudential Building. As you clink glasses, toast the iconic city that spreads out in all directions to the horizon.

The Boston Public Library (Central Branch) on Boylston Street (bpl. org) contains even more than the wonderful 19th-century exterior promises. The courtyard was inspired by the Palazzo della Cancelleria in Rome, and artist John Singer Sargent BOSTON PUBLIC LIBRARY COURTYARD

The Harrison Grey Otis House is an elegant late18th century mansion, designed by architect Charles Bulfinch. Sports nuts should head north to Portal Park near TD Garden, where Bruins ice hockey legend Bobby Orr is frozen forever in a bronze statue commemorating his most famous gamewinning goal.

TD Garden is the hub within The Hub, where hoops, hockey and world-class music share center stage. It’s also a great departure point for exploring all points due north of Boston. A short stroll away is City Winery, where rockers new and legendary add their sonic genius to a year-round celebration of viniculture.
