We were only in Boston for two days, and following the Freedom Trail allowed us to see all the major points of interest in only a few hours. My teen boys weren’t bored and I loved the tour.

Bricks n the pavement mark the trail. Uniformed city workers at key intersections help provide information and maps.

Snaking through the heart of the City, the Freedom Trail is a brilliant way to get your bearings and see some of Boston’s main landmarks. Easy to deviate from and then jump back on. Highly recommended.

Love history? You will love the freedom trail. So much to see and do your mind will burst. Plus tons of first class restaurants along the way.

This is the thing you should do in Boston if you are there first time. Learn the Revolutionary history and learn about the old city of Boston. Very old and good restaurants and shops on its way.

We walked part of the Freedom Trail. Unfortunately we were having very cold weather. In our limited travel we did go in Paul Revere’s house, and the Old North Church. We hope to return to Boston for more...in better weather.

one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston
Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling

during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting
children and eager tourists through the pond. Have
