Get a good guide and you will not have a better way to know the history of Boston. Its a long walk but every step is worth the info and history.

This trail allows you to experience where history happened that led to our free country. I am so much more appreciative of the sacrifice of the early colonists to settle and defend America. Bring your walking shoes and open your schedule to take your time.

I am not a tour person typically. However, if we had just walked the Freedom Trail ourselves we would have come away, I believe, fairly uninspired. Doing the tour, hearing the back stories, really made the experience. Really interesting pieces of our history. We did...More
