The red line on the sidewalk leads you on this 2.5-mile, self-guided tour of American Revolution sites. It starts at the Boston Common, America's oldest public park, and ends at the famed Bunker Hill Monument.

This was one of the most memorable days I had in Boston! We strolled passed some of the most historic buildings in Boston's oldest areas. We took some detours such as the Quincy Market for lunch and enjoyed the scenic views of Boston from the...More
Thank you Rebecca for a great tour. This was arrange from Princess Cruise line and it was a wonderful, factual and enjoyable tour. There is a lot of walking but it is not really too noticable if the guide is good. We lucked out. Glad...More
You can pay for a tour and there are apps available. I was solo traveling and only in Boston for a day so I just followed the trail at my own pace and googled the stops along the way. It's a great way to get...More
We walked the entire Freedom Trail (okay, except we didn't make it to Bunker Hill). It's a long walk, but worth it. The USS Constitution is a must see! Some of the places on the Trail required an admission price, but, skipping that, seeing those...More
Loved doing this walk as it enabled us to really see a lot of Boston. Us loved following the brick trail across the city. We downloaded an audio guide and listened to that at each stop. It took us a good 4 hours with a...More
I enjoyed learning about the history of Boston and then seeing the sites in person. There are many ways you can do the freedom trail. You can purchase a guided tour, use an app to listen or read about the trail as you walk thru...More
The freedom trail is a lot of fun. The only issue is there’s a lot of construction and it’s hard to get around because of traffic/tight roads. I recommend if you go, go on days that are not that busy so you can see everything...More
The Trail is 2.5 miles, but with walking at sites, it is much more. Very well organized and you can read or listen to an audio recording to get the historic facts. On a sunny Saturday, it was very well attended.
The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where, during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting children and eager tourists through the pond. Have
your camera ready to capture its peaceful beauty in the middle of a bustling city. Continue on through the Gardens and take in some open green space at the Boston Common, where you can spend time throwing a frisbee, sitting on a park bench, or, in the winter time, skating on the frog pond. Head north from the end of the Common to see the golden dome of the State House, and travel through government center to Quincy Market and Faneuil Hall, both a historic and popular destination worth a quick visit for a first time to Boston. Head to Long Wharf to visit the Aquarium, or catch a boat to Charlestown or even Cape Cod.
