Nice trail to visit Boston and know about the american history. Beautiful buidings, parks, cementries. It takes you at least 5 hours to complete the trail. Boston is a beautiful city to walk, safe, clean.

Well marked sidewalk trail. Easy to follow and leads to all the most historic sites. Use a map to locate your starting point. The guides are helpful, but you can go on your own if you have a good knowledge of colonial history.

Easy to follow the red bricks and see the stops along the way. Great way to see the north end and learn about Paul Revere. Needless to say, weather will impact the level of enjoyment.

The Freedom trail was great. Saw a variety of historic places. Broke it up into 2 days because of my schedule but could be done in one for just the trail.

If you’re going to Boston you have to see the Freedom trail. It basically walks you through history. Most of the biggest things to see in Boston are on the freedom trail (Paul Revere house, Old North Church, etc.). It can be a little hard...More

The Freedom Trail should be on everyone's list when visiting Boston. It's an easy to follow tour that you can make at your own pace. Yes, you can be surrounded by tourists, but still enjoyable. You visit places such as the North Church, Bunker Hill,...More
