This is a great way to spend an afternoon. Lots of history and exercise. I especially enjoyed the presentation at the North Church. The USS Constitution is very moving, and the statue of Paul Revere defines it all.

We purchased a booklet at a gift shop that had a page of information per stop and we casually walked through most of the freedom trail. There is so much history and information here this is a simple way to see much of it at your own pace.You have restaurants and things along the way as well as some of... More

I did the Freedom Trail with my family recently when my brother and his girlfriend came to visit. I loved the cemeteries we stopped at, and having to walk from place to place, trying to appreciate what others in the past had done. There was more to it than I expected and we ended at the Union Oyster House. It... More

I have to tell you we did not do the Freedom Trail proper. We walked around so much of the city and were also staying in Somerville, we saw everything as we explored this beautiful city. if your not into walking (and have limited days) than do the walk, but as we are big walkers we just explored. Just my... More

The full trail takes you from Boston Common through to the USS Constitution on the other side of the river. Our tour only covered the first half of it upto Feneuil Hall but there was an option to join a tour about an hour later covering the rest of the trail. But be warned, you will have to pay again,...

This a great way to see Boston and the historical sites. It can be done in one day, but two days gives you time to explore the sites and markets and the city at more laid back pace, to stop and have some food and enjoy a park or a pub.

Dare to take on the freedom trail if ever you're in Boston! It's a bit tiresome on a warm summer day, but all the beautiful, historic sights along the way make you forget about that. If you're into history, or just curious about how our nation was founded, this is the best attraction to partake in. They do offer guided... More

Everyone needs to follow the Freedom Trail - what a history trip that is and no one should miss it. Self guided tour to see the sites can be fun.

Great history walking tour through Boston. We did not use a guide, but were able to pick up on history through the signs and markers. If you are in Boston for the first time and want to see everything it is the way to go. It is along walk, so bring good walking shoes. It might be also good to... More

Plenty to see on the Freedom Trail. If you like history, you'll definitely enjoy this. Start at Boston Common and work your way to Bunker Hill....along the way you'll see Paul Revere's house, Old North Church, centuries-old cemeteries, USS Constitution, etc. Plan on spending the better part of the day and enjoy the journey. Also - you'll go right through... More
