We took our time and walked it ourselves. Several years ago we took the tour, which I would recommend for a first timer. But, this time we wanted to take our time and be in the moment at each place. Walking the path and stopping at the various stops allowed us to take in the history. We also were able to stop and listen to a brass band as they played Christmas Carols across from the meeting house, and we stopped for coffee and hot chocolate to warm up.
I was really impressed in a nonimpressed way with Paul Revere's home. Not much to see but the outside of the building, as it was evening when we made it there and it was all locked up; which made it feel authentic. Especially could imagine Mr. Revere pulling out his horse and clattering on the cobblestone street. One could almost hear the hoofs on the stones. Also, this is a neighborhood where people live, not just a historical site.
