You are able to take your time walking around this chapel, and there are a couple of unlocked box pews which you can sit in. A nice cool respite on an unusually hot autum day.

This old historic church is right on the Freedom Trail. It has a burial ground adjacent. Make a small donation to help with upkeep.

Wonderfully maintained revolutionary chapel, with historic information abounding throughout the chapel. Worth the time to sit in the upholstered pews and look around.

An interesting stop on the Freedom Trail and certainly a beautiful church, very busy with tourists doing the Freedom Trail, but certainly worth a visit.

King's Chapel is a very old church in downtown Boston. It isn't as "pretty" as some of the other churches that have the stained glass windows, but it is very Puritan-looking and gorgeous in its own way. We enjoyed our time inside.

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
