Freedom Trail Run is the ACTIVE way to tour Boston! Our two hour guided run is relaxed & super-interesting and will show you Boston in an up-close and detailed way that's unlike any other tour. During the run, we stop at over 16 major historic sites to learn interesting facts (and take pictures!), and wind-up getting a great workout by the time we finish.

So glad I cam upon this activity. Best way to experience the Freedom Trail & Boston in a short amount of time. Ginger was excellent in giving us the need to know information and a few extra insights into each site...then it was on to the next location. Pace was great for experienced and non-experienced runners (in my opinion). Will... More

We joined the freedom trail run this morning and loved every bit of it. Eddie and ginger were very welcoming and worked together as a tag team to engage the group and deliver the history of the area while guiding us on the run. It was really informative and suitable for all ages - our three kids loved it as... More

Traveled to Boston for a conference and wanted a way to get in a run while passing by some of the historic sites the city had to offer. Found the Freedom Trail Running Tour and was NOT disappointed! This 5K tour had us follow the Freedom Trail, stopping several times to view various sites like Samuel Adams' grave, the Old... More

I was in Boston for a conference so I didn't have much time to walk the entire Freedom Trail. This was great as it's much faster and you still get to learn a lot of history! I'm coming back to Boston in September and will be taking the tour again!

Such an amazing way to learn about Boston and experience the origins of the US. The tour takes you through all the major landmarks and includes a mini history lesson at each. Full of fun facts and a fun, easy workout. At the end is a ferry boat ride and a free drink and t-shirt. Our tour guide, Ginger, was... More

We spent the past weekend in Boston, and decided to try something a little different. We found the Freedom Trail Run online and read all the awesome reviews.

My wife and I ran the route in 2010 on our own and decided to do it this time with an organizer and a group. Eddie and Ginger were fun, enthusiastic and had lots of information we hadn't heard before. The pace was reasonable and the other people fun (from other states, countries, etc.). You don't do the 'full route'... More

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood 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.
