The Old City Hall site is an interesting historical feature of the Freedom Trail. There are a few interesting things to view at this site: The hopscotch in the sidewalk on School Street indicates this spot is the site of the Boston Latin School. There...More
The grounds are well kept. The statue of the donkey is cute. The front doors are so tall with such low door knobs.It was late when we got there so we didn't get to see much but was impressed with how well kept it is.
This is something you walk by when onthe Freedom Trail. It has a resteraunt in the courtyard. A statue of Ben Franklin and Josiah Quincy. Also is a Donkey statue and a placque that explains the Party symbols of the Donkey and Elephant.

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.
