Definitely get a tour guide (Walking Tour), which is well worth the $12. Great way to see the city, but need good weather and your walking shoes.

This was awesome, I have never been on anything like this before. This is a walking tour of Boston, and it takes 1.5 hours. Bring a good pair of shoes, or your feet will let you know later on.

We love Boston. Ant the freedom trail is a must on any trip. It's one thing to know the history . It's another to walk it. If you can take a tour you will get great little facts the history books don't tell you

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
