The Freedom Trail is a truly unique and enlightening experience. There are not many cities in the U.S. when you can take a walk through the revolutionary history of this country. The trail is clearly marked and outlined, and the sites are quite remarkable. Make...More

It is a good way to discover the history of Boston so long as you have plenty of energy for lots of walking. The trail was well laid out and easy to folloe.

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

Depends on how many stops you make. We made about seven stops and it took us three hours. Well worth the walk. I would skip the Paul Revere House. A bit pricey and not that much to see. Take a picture from the outside... More

If you are interested in viewing and not entering any of the historic sites, it can be very nice. There's plenty to do, taste, and see along the trail.
