The Freedom Trail was my favourite activity in Boston. It offers the best of everything, history, scenery, great food and drink. You don't need to be a marathoner to complete it.

Great walk and fun for any season! The staff at the visitor center helped me plan and know the route. It is easily marked with the brick on the road. Can be accomplished in a short time as everything is close together.

I downloaded the FreedomWalk app, which is great. BUT it doesn't replace the tour we took with the Freedom Trail Foundation.

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
