This is one of the best ways to explore Boston. If you split the walk into two or three parts this walk is also good for elderly people or smaller children. During the walk you can also meet very interesting people (Bostonians but also tourists).

Eddie and Ginger were great! The tour was amazing and I learned so much. What made it super awesome was Eddie telling me to use the subway system so I wouldn't have to worry about parking and driving into morning Boston traffic. He was so nice to walk me through it so I would know exactly where to go! Thanks... More

Went on a hot Friday afternoon with Ginger as our guide. The run is pretty easy with lots of stops at a nice pace. Even though it was pretty hot, the breaks and water were more than enough. Eddie even came by to check on our tour and bring water because it was so hot (talk about customer service!). This... More

This tour was a blast. As a Bostonian, I'm used to going on the Freedom Trail with out-of-town visitors and because there's so much ground to cover and the trail is socked in by the heat of the city, it can get a little sweltering to do as a walking tour. But, doing it as a running tour is amazing... More

I was a little nervous because I'm not really a runner- but this was perfect!! You make several stops so it's not so bad. Eddie and Ginger did an amazing job. I would highly recommend doing this!!

We really enjoy this tour. Running from spot to spot makes the tour much more efficient and you get your workout for the day so you can feast on some great local food (Ginger gave great suggestions). We learned a lot and had some good laughs (at interesting info not in school books). Ginger was well informed, professional and also... More

Eddie and Ginger did a great job of showcasing their city. The run delivered exactly what was advertised on their website. I also appreciated the humorous twist that they each put on the historical events and locations. It was a legitimate 5K but with the many stops it is easily manageable for beginning runners. Even seasoned runners will enjoy the... More

Brittany Trimble was INCREDIBLE on our race. She was clever, interesting a WONDERFUL leader. She was leading a team of cabi sisters {she works for cabi too!} and we are a bit of a handful high maintenance gals. We really don't "run" and many of the ladies had NEVER done a 5K before. She kept us on pace but didn't... 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.
