We were so pleased with the park ranger tours on Saturday. The "Cradle of Liberty" talk in the Great Hall is fantastic. The "Meetings Mobs & Martyrs" was good and the "Enemies to this Country" was even better. The tours are not overly taxing, being...More

Excellent dree tours depart from the visitor center. Rangers are helpful and dedicated. There are also brochures about Boston and surrounding National Marks (Freedom trail map) if you'd rather go on your own.

We really enjoyed visiting this NP visitor center. We took a morning walking tour. The park ranger did a great job of giving information in an interesting way.

The rangers here were incredibly helpful, and gave us a map of the Freedom Trail, as well as some insight and direction as to what they thought we should do first. The map was great, and I highly recommend stopping here.

Every town should have a citizen as loyal to his or her hometown as President Jimmy Carter is to his. Then possibly we wouldn't see so many small towns closed down, shuttered up, abandoned, ignored by travelers and left to decay. The deal in Plains,...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
