We had an excellent experience throughout the 2 days we were on and off the Upper Deck Trolleys. The tour offers all day parking in Cambridge for $4. Since we were staying a few miles from downtown Boston, that worked very well. The stops were...More

Follow the Freedom Trail over the Washington St bridge
from the North End or take the scenic water locks to
Paul Revere Park. Walk through City Square and stroll
down cute Main street, wandering up the windy
residential streets to Monument Square, where you can
learn about the city’s history along with a great view
