Take a journey to see some historical places dating back to the American Revolution.
The Freedom Trail is marked by a red brick path and stretches 2.5 miles. This walking trail begins at the Boston Common, America’s oldest public park. You will come across many historical sites include the granary burying ground, old corner bookstore, old South meeting house, old state house, Paul Revere’s house, Bunker Hill monument, and the USS Constitution warship.
If you want to do a self-guided tour, you are more than welcome to do so. There are also several Freedom Trail tours available, and the tour guides dress up in clothing from the time period to make the experience feel authentic. Depending on which tour you take, you may find that you gain a new perspective about the historical events that occurred in Boston. Most of these tours will take an hour to an hour and a half, so plan out your day accordingly. If you want to take multiple tours, you can split it up into two or three separate days. Stop by the Freedom Trail store to purchase a guidebook, postcards, or souvenirs before you go. If you have a group larger than 10 people, you need to request a reservation by calling (617) 357-8300.
