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!

This is a wonderful place to stop on the freedom Trail. The history is very interesting, and the interior is lovely. The box pews are intriguing to inspect. I believe they have concerts there fairly often.

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
