Worth the time and small amount of money! You truly get to see real US History. If the weather is good it's a great leisurely walk.

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

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

We did not use a tour company. Maps are everywhere and it's all just a nice walk. There are a couple of places that charge for admittance but you don't have to go in if you don't want to pay.

Parking garage. We found one near the USS Constitution/Bunker Hill that was around $24 for the day. It wasn't super busy or crowded either. There are other garages throughout the city.
