Follow the trail and go past most of the interesting sights of Boston. Maybe I had expected more but Boston does not start to compare to places like Washington DC.

Wonderful experience (if you like history). The cemetery self-guided tour was fascinating. We has a beautiful day. We just followed the line - you can't get lost!

The Freedom Trail is the perfect Boston adventure. Ideal for adults and families with young children. It's a pleasant and well-marked walk. Be sure to get a trail brochure to learn the significance of the sites. There are plenty of opportunities to rest, refresh and dine along your path. Good chance to run into Ben Franklin around Quincy Market, too.

We enjoyed our Freedom trail in Boston over two days. We started from Bunker Hill and ended it at Boston Commons. The entire walk around the trail gave us very good insights about the history of Boston tea Party, Boston Massacre and the American freedom revolution in a whole.

I really enjoyed utilizing the freedom trail during my visit to Boston. It was easy to follow and it helped us to get to improtant sites I may have already been aware of and others I was just discovering.

Boston is best known for its history. If you have never been here, The Freedom Trail is a best. It's pretty long, so best to do it on a mild day. Make sure to reward yourself at the end by picking up some yummy treats to eat in the North End.

This walking tour is full of historical buildings, sites and churches. Very easy to follow as the sidewalks are marked to guide you if you wish to do it on your own. Great city full of great history.
