If you want to hit up Beantown for the Fourth of July, the Ames Boston is offering three ways to spend the holiday weekend at the historic hotel.

Patriotic history buffs (or Sarah Palin who needs a big brush-up on her Revolutionary history) will want to try the Explore package, which brings you all over the city to see spots where Paul Revere and the Puritans visited; homes of literary geniuses like Emerson, Hawthorn and Thoreau; and sites of the Boston Tea Party and Big Dig as part of the Boston by Foot Walking Tour.

Among the historically themed tours, you can choose the Beacon Hill, Boston by Little Feet, Boston Underfoot, the Dark Side of Boston, Heart of the Freedom Trail, Literary Landmarks, The North End or Victorian Back Bay. The package, which also includes accommodations and two cocktails, starts at $310.

For a good old-fashioned cookout, head to the hotel's restaurant, Woodward. Its Fourth of July Backyard BBQis an all-you-can-eat feast. You can munch on grill fare like burgers, hot dogs, steak tips, sausage with peppers and onions and corn on the cob. There also will be tomato, mozzarella and basil salad; potato salad; watermelon; cookies and brownies. The buffet costs $25, though drinks aren't included.

The basic of the bunch is the July 4th package, which puts you inside the hotel for a night and you'll get continental breakfast for two in its Woodward restaurant and free parking. It starts at $315 a night.
