You have to do it if you come to Boston. It is clearly marked with red brick and a first must stop is the National park service office Faneuil Hall and get a map and use the restroom.

It's a 2.5 mile walk one way, so there's quite a bit of walking. The trail really brings you to many relevant historical sites in the city. There are a number of people walking the trail, so there's a good crowd as you go, but...More
