The National Park Service offers 90-minute guided tours starting at the Boston National Historical Park Visitor Center . Maps are also available here. Stops include the Old State House , Faneuil Hall and the Old North Church . You can also discover Paul Revere's house , the site of the Boston Massacre, and the Copp's Hill Burial Ground . At the end of the trail in Charlestown, the Bunker Hill Monument and the U.S.S. Constitution await you.
This is where freedom was born. Walk thru the North End of Boston to North Church, Paul Revere's House and more. Stop for the best Italian food and take the family. A great learning experience for all.
The Freedom Trail is a must do in Boston. It's the easiest and most convinient way to connect the history of the city with seightseeing without worrying where you have to turn on the next corner.
The Freedom Train is painted along the sidewalk - just keep going next to it and you won't miss a thing!
If you have at least a half day in Boston, you have more than enough time to enjoy the incredible historical sites that are spread throughout the city. You can see for yourself the places where Boston earned it's name as the heart of the American Revolution. Many of the sites have tour guides or even actors to give you fist hand experience of Revolutionary Way Boston.
You get to walk in the footsteps of early American history and do it while visiting a beautiful city and you always feel very safe and it doesn't cost a thing.
My wife and I married 35 years ago and borrowed a friends car and drove to Boston for our honeymoon. We didn't have or need much money to enjoy Boston then and you still don't need a lot of money today.
How much do I love the idea of following a red brick trail throughout the city of Boston? So much!
Not only is the freedom trail free, it gets the tourist out on their own and gets them to interact with the entire city and the historical sites. I enjoy how you can decide where to walk to and how much time to spend at each historical site. I loved seeing the Boston Common Cemetary, Paul Revere's home (although we didn't pay to go in and tour it) North Church and even treking up into Charlestown. It was a great work-out, completely interesting, interacting, and free!
This is an excellent way to see the city from many angles. Not only do you view the historical landmarks that are left, but by walking through diverse sections, you are reminded of all the nationalities that now make up this older city. Fun way to meet people and try to visualise the way life was in other eras. For example most of this city is resting now on landfill, and what was around for the American revolution was a rather small piece of today's pie.
