Freedom Trail Run is the ACTIVE way to tour Boston! Our two hour guided run is relaxed & super-interesting and will show you Boston in an up-close and detailed way that's unlike any other tour. During the run, we stop at over 16 major historic sites to learn interesting facts (and take pictures!), and wind-up getting a great workout by the time we finish. Registration includes the guided run, return boat ride, drink and a great shirt.

My son and I went on the freedom trail run with Ginger and agreed that this was definitely one of the best ways to experience Boston. We have already had quite a few running tours around the world, with quite a few guides, but Ginger was definitely one of the best. She was very attentive and managed to set the... More

Brittany Trimble led us on an amazing Freedom Trail Run this morning. Her presentation style was engaging, fun, easy to follow and concise. Her energy oozed throughout the group. Honestly, it was so much fun and Brittany was a joy. She rocks!

This was a very fun way to squeeze in a little sightseeing & history + mild cardio before my convention started. Included a ferry ride and super cute t-shirt.

Probably the best thing we did in Boston during a weekend trip. Me and my boys really enjoyed the run. The guides were great and seen a ton of history while running a 5K. The run is at maybe a 9 minute a mile pace with a lot of stops

Ginger escorted our running group through the city of Boston. She had such a great personality! She was so friendly and she delivered an excellent tour of the historical landmarks. My entire group had a fantastic time!

Such a wonderful way to see the Freedom Trail! Ginger was a spectacular tour guide! Our whole group really enjoyed the experience! Even though we've lived in Boston for a few years and are major history buffs, we still learned a lot at each stop. The run was a very comfortable pace and for those who may have been a... More

We had the best time doing this run! We brought our 4 kids on the trip with us and planned on taking them around on the Freedom Trail ourselves. My husband found this at the last minute and booked this instead. Ginger was a great tour guide! It was plenty of information, but not overly explained. She kept it really... More

Staying in Downtown

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown
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 your camera ready to capture its peaceful beauty in the middle of a bustling city. Continue on through the Gardens and take in some open green space at the Boston Common, where you can spend time throwing a frisbee, sitting on a park bench, or, in the winter time, skating on the frog pond. Head north from the end of the Common to see the golden dome of the State House, and travel through government center to Quincy Market and Faneuil Hall, both a historic and popular destination worth a quick visit for a first time to Boston. Head to Long Wharf to visit the Aquarium, or catch a boat to Charlestown or even Cape Cod.
