The statue itself is very nice but it is located right near the church where he lit the lanterns. One of the oldest areas of Boston!

It's a statue, not much else I can say. It also doesn't give you a lot of reference to who Paul Revere was although many of us know more or less. Just a nice statue.

If you're in Boston for some history then this statue is a must see. There's something special about standing in a place where history actually happened. The statue is there to honor and remember Paul Revere's famed midnight ride, which started just behind the statue at the Old North Church. The statue is in a nice square that seems somewhat... More

Impressive statue on a "hidden" small square. When walking by it's worth a stop. It's also part of the famous Freedom Trail. So when you walking the trail you will not miss this statue.

We came across the statue as we walked towards the old church . The statue has been perfectly positioned with the steeple of the church in the background ...it seemed this was the photo opportunity that lots of tourists wanted as there were a large number of people waiting to have theirs taken beside the statue ..there are a lot...

Obviously historic and may want a photo. Easy to see when going past the downtown historic sites. Can just incorporate as part of a walking tour.

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown
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.
