We had one day to see Boston! Thank goodness we scoped out things on the trail that were “must sees” and incorporated a couple of things off the trail ahead of time. It would be easy to get history overload and get distracted if you...More

We walked the Freedom Trail in the fall. A beautiful day! Wear comfy shoes and decide in advance how much time you want to spend and how far you are willing to walk. It is a long walk if you follow the trail (which is...More

Why is this not adopted in all cities to show you round, so clear and easy and so many sites of interest, thank you Boston!

The freedom trail is a great way to see historic parts of Boston. You can stop in Quincy market for a snack and there are plenty of restaurants and pubs along the way if you need a break.

Need to provide maps on all corners. Hard to know where you are. No clear directions. You follow a double brick line around the city but don’t really know where you are going. Hills are killer!

The Freedom Trail was one of the top reasons we chose to visit Boston. It did not disappoint. We started at the Boston Common and took ourselves on the tour, following the trail and informational signs. We went as far as the Old North Church...More

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

The app is specifically for the Freedom Trail and the Boston African American National Historic Site, and it's free! It's called "NPS Boston".

Start at Boston Commons. Beware, even though the trail is 2.5 miles long, if you have limited time, you may want to prioritize stops in advance. If you stop and take in each site along the trail, you will easily take up a... More
