This is another church along the freedom trail and it’s worth the visit. The building is interesting and of course has 200 plus years of history.

Very historic and interesting church. Definitely worth stopping and taking time to explore. Oddly, the King's Chapel Burial Ground is not affiliated and pre-dates the chapel by a century. Highly recommend!

First church in Boston established by original migrants. The church is still in use today. Pews were reserved for families and there were recognizable names in these reserved areas.

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
