For a first time visitor with only a few hours to see the sights, this was fabulous in spite of the pouring rain. The role Boston and Paul Revere played in the 18thC War of Independence was clearly explained as major sites were visited.

This is an easy to follow trail, seeing some of Boston’s historic sites. It starts at the visitor centre on the Boston Common and is very accessible to all. Definitely a good way of seeing the city (as long as the weather is decent).

We walked the trail in it's entirety. It was a summer weekend and very crowded. We enjoyed the stops along the way. We did not pay to see the attractions, stuck to the free ones. This is an easy way to see the top sites...More

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
