The Freedom Trail is not for the faint of heart ! ... if you're doing it by foot that is. My boyfriend and I stayed in Boston for Thanksgiving weekend and decided to do the Freedom Tour on Thanksgiving Day. We were lucky with beautiful weather and started in the morning about 10am. We decided to do the trail ourselves walking and altogether walked about 6 miles or so (did the whole trail back as well, we love to walk!) and loved every minute of it. It was so fascinating to see the history of our country and where history was made. Some of our favorites were the old cemeteries, and the spot of the Boston Massacre and first reading of the Declaration of Independece, and the USS Constitution. All of the spots were special in their own way - it was a little sad to see that the old corner bookstore is now a Chipotle, I have a feeling it would have been very charming if it were still original. It was also really interesting to see all of the different parts of the city (Little Italy, etc.) each part has a different vibe of its own. If you are planning to do a lot of walking then wear comfy shoes ! It's definitely doable to walk the whole city but just leave yourself several hours to really do some exploring. Highly recommend this if you are visiting Boston, it's a great way to connect with our heritage and ancestors and really feel a great sense of pride and patriotism to our country, it made us proud to be Americans !
