Our first visit to Boston was terrific and we started with the Freedom Trail walk. It was such an inspiring and exhilaration, cathartic walk and the historic value - just moved us so much! You must do this while in Boston!

Great way to see the history of Boston. We did it all at once but you could easily break it down into smaller chunks

Good way to learn about the history of Boston and indeed America. Mostly easy to follow using the red bricks as your guide but there are a few confusing places where the red bricks go off in different directions. I'm sure there's a reason for...More

Follow the red brick in the sidewalk and you are on track. Very interesting. Way too much to see in one afternoon.

Many historical places are included on this easy to find and follow walking trail! Marked well by a path of cobblestone brick, it allows you to take in all of the sites.

We walked all of the trail which is a good way to learn about the history of the city. We did it on a hot da which was a bit of a challenge!

Great trail covering so many significant parts of Boston's history. We did it ourselves as there are many self guided maps etc to help and if you pop into Faneuil Hall the very helpful guided will set you on the right track.

Easy to follow the brickwork path in the pavvement (sidewalk). easy to do a self guide or you can go with an organised group. Allow plenty of time.

The Freedom Trail is a fun walk around the city to all of the historical highlights. You just follow the red brick path. We met lots of people walking the trail and it was a gorgeous day to be outside.

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

The app is specifically for the Freedom Trail and the Boston African American National Historic Site, and it's free! It's called "NPS Boston".

Start at Boston Commons. Beware, even though the trail is 2.5 miles long, if you have limited time, you may want to prioritize stops in advance. If you stop and take in each site along the trail, you will easily take up a... More
