Wow .. This is question that should have a slew of answers from hidden places to fantastic places to eat. One of the things I truly enjoy when walking in Boston or Cambridge is the amount of history that is tucked away around every corner. No matter how many times the same route over and over again my eye always catches something new. If you can keep your eyes open you will notice small brass signs and other postings from one of the local historical societies. One of my personal favorites is perfect for this time of year. Take the Graveyard tour of Boston's largest cemeteries . You will be amazed at the local folklore and the historical info given during one of these tours.
