During this latest trip to Boston I did try to see all of its sightseeing and was pretty amazing by its historic city where you can really learn how things was done and how it happened. If it wasn't for the uploaded snow I could actually literally see the trail in ground. But with a map and a tour it... More

Follow the red brick road -- it will take you down the Freedom Trail. Many of Boston's great historic sites are connected by this trail, ranging from the State House to Revolutionary sites, ending up at the USS Constitution. Very historic, very interesting, very worth your time. Depending on how long you linger, count on most of a day for... More

This is definitely an exercise, but it is well worth it! I went with my partner who happens to love history like me. Besides seeing the main points of the freedom trail, to take a break we walked into little shops that we walked by on the trail, and found some really amazing souvenirs. We both loved it, but we...

First day in Boston traveling 24 hours from Australia and lovely to be able to walk a trail that takes you through a number of historical sites at your own leisure. It's very easy to follow you can "jump on and off" as you please and the history along the way was very interesting. Even if your not into history... More

Short walk in downtown Boston, not too long/tiring, should pay a visit if you are interested in American History.

We picked up the trail from Boston Common across from the Parliament Building and walked the whole way to Bunker Hill and had a great time re-living the history of Boston and the USA.It is marvellous to be able to walk through time touching the very places those famous men of the past touched and actually visiting their final resting...

There are lots of ways to see the Freedom Trail. At the Park Ranger station in Faneuil Hall marketplace, you can go on Ranger guided free tours. You can also pick up a booklet to do it on your own. Another option that is fun and not that expensive, is to go on one of the guided tours that start... More

Yup, we trekked the freedom trail. WELL worth it if you are a history buff and interesting even if you are not. See the origins of our country firsthand. While it is a bit of a walk, it is nothing that an average person cannot do in a day. I would suggest you read up on it first, as it... More
