This area near the church gets you away from the busy, hectic restaurant lined Hanover Street. It is a quiet space to get your breath back and cool down on a hot day. It then leads you on to North end Church - which is a MUST visit site

We ended up walking by the Statue and took a few pictures. It is located between Two churches in the North End. It is a nice place to sit on a bench for a few minutes and enjoy the surroundings.

I'm usually not one for photos especially of statues, but from Commonwealth Avenue looking through the gate with this fine statue of Paul Revere and the yellow willows and red leaves of the trees and the tall buildings in the background - it was like WOW! A true highlight of Boston Common. Very fine indeed.

Sorry but pretty much just a statue like most other statues. It is on the Freedom Trail though so don't avoid it. And if you take a picture, don't take it from the front. You'll only get Paul's horse lol.

Cyrus Edwin Dallin started creating this sculpture in 1883. It took him 16 years to complete it. It took much longer to have it installed in its present location. It was not opened to the public until 1940. It is a lovely depiction of Paul Revere and it is in a lovely location, surrounded by beautiful shade trees.

One of the interesting things to see on the Freedom Trail is the Paul Revere Statue, located on the Paul Revere Mall in between Hannover and Salem Streets. The monument is of Paul Revere on horseback, riding out to warn of the arriving British. Revere is in period clothing and Revere appears serious and fully aware of the risk of... More

Lovely park surrounds this statue. Children playing in the area, Windows looking out on this monument of someone who is remembered for his desire for this nation to have independence!

We made this a stop on our sight-seeing day. Its a good spot for a quick photo but mostly I liked the surrounding courtyard. Boston has beautiful streets and alleys and this one is very quaint with beautiful brick and lots of unique coves and nooks. There isnt much to do there except photos but on a sight-seeing day its...

It's okay to pass by...on your way to seeing other things. However, it's a good iconic photo-op spot.

Staying in Downtown

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown
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 your camera ready to capture its peaceful beauty in the middle of a bustling city. Continue on through the Gardens and take in some open green space at the Boston Common, where you can spend time throwing a frisbee, sitting on a park bench, or, in the winter time, skating on the frog pond. Head north from the end of the Common to see the golden dome of the State House, and travel through government center to Quincy Market and Faneuil Hall, both a historic and popular destination worth a quick visit for a first time to Boston. Head to Long Wharf to visit the Aquarium, or catch a boat to Charlestown or even Cape Cod.
