My daughter and I are into running, and were looking to do a running event together in Boston. We picked the Freedom Trail Run and were not disappointed. Our guide, Ginger, was lively and knowledgeable, and made our run a fun and memorable experience. She set a good running pace, not too fast, not too slow and told us all... More

I've been living in Boston for a couple of months, and this was a really great way to get to know the area and the history here. The guide was really fun and knowledgeable. We're stopped and talking for most of the time, so slower runners won't have a problem catching/keeping up.

We were having a girls weekend in Boston and one of the girls suggested the Freedom Trail Run. We thought it would be a fun way to tour the city and learn some history. We were not disappointed. The tour guides were very nice and knowledgable. It helped that the weather was perfect; a little chilly but what you should... More

My 14 year old son and I really enjoyed this tour. The guides were funny and knowledgable. If you can do this run at the front end of your visit, it will help you get oriented to where things are in the city. It is about a 5K run, but the pace is not too strenuous and there are 16... More

Full disclosure: I'm a Bostonian, and a history nerd. I had high expectations. I'm happy to say these expectations were met-- and exceed!-- by this great, fun tour. Though the run covered a lot of ground I was already familiar with, the tour itself surprised me several times with landmarks and facts I didn't know. It's hard to find facts... More

I really enjoyed the two hours this trip took. My husband and I had already been on one of the trolley and ferry tours so had a brief history of the area, and this tour complemented what I had learnt. It was also great to be able to cover the whole of the freedom trail a lot quicker than if... More

By far the best way to experience the Freedom Trail! Eddie, the facilitator, was so friendly and informative. His associate, Ginger, was also a great storyteller. I lived in Boston for 5 years while in college and was pleased to learn some of Boston's unique history and share it with my daughters. The running made the tour go faster than... More

Thanks, Eddie and Ginger, for the totally wonderful and informative running tour of Boston on Saturday. Once again, this NYer had a chance to fall in love with your town all over again!

Our family of four did this tour on a recent weekend in Boston. The 10- and 13-year olds loved seeing historical sites this way! I did, too. We all easily kept up (the kids play sports; I am a casual 10-mi/week runner). It was a challenge, however, for my 50-year old spouse who does minimal physical activity. The guides (Eddie... More

Staying in Downtown

Neighborhood Profile
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.
