We walked the whole Freedom trail over a few days & enjoyed every minute of it, visiting Bunker hill was my favorite part but there is lots to see/do along the trail, very cool.

The park rangers take short, one hour trips, along parts of the Freedom Trail which were informative and even kept the children amused

I absolutely love history. In kind, I love cities that don't put a price on sharing that history with visitors. For me, that brings to mind Berlin, and now Boston. Basically, to get to the Freedom Trail, head to the Boston Commons - a big...More

The Freedom Trail connects history of the US. There are churches, cemeteries, meeting houses, and Old Ironsides. The trail is marked on the sidewalk, so you can start anywhere and follow the route for about three miles back to where you started. I would recommend...More

My 15 year old son and I did the entire trail from start to finish and then came back to Little Italy and had a fantastic dinner with a stop at Mike's Pastry for desert.

This is a great way to walk through Boston and see some of the major sites along the way. Whether you want to visit all of the various sites or just stroll through Boston it's well worth a look.

Just tracing the tracks of our forefather's footsteps was a great experience. The trail is marked with red bricks embedded right in the road. To see the churches, the Paul Revere home, etc was a wonderful history experience. I highly recommend. Parking can be tricky...More

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

Right at the start, you have the original Cheers (formerly the Bull & Finch), across the street from the Public Garden. You have to go off the trail for a little bit, but not much. That would be a fun place to start. You... More
