My wife and I ran the route in 2010 on our own and decided to do it this time with an organizer and a group. Eddie and Ginger were fun, enthusiastic and had lots of information we hadn't heard before. The pace was reasonable and the other people fun (from other states, countries, etc.). You don't do the 'full route'... More

It was a cold Saturday morning when we all met at the starting line at Boston Common. It turned out to be one of the most friendly warm runs that I have ever done. Out guide Ginger was a wealth of knowledge, she knew all the details and secerts about all the sites that we ran to. Our pace was... More

My sister and I run a 5k every month. We were planning to come to Boston for a conference. While searching for 5k's in the area I came across the Freedom Trail Run! Although it's not like a traditional 5k we decided to sign up. I am sure glad we did!!! This was such a fun way to incorporate an... More

My daughter and I are into running, and were looking to do a running event together in Boston. We picked the Freedom Trail Run and were not disappointed. Our guide, Ginger, was lively and knowledgeable, and made our run a fun and memorable experience. She set a good running pace, not too fast, not too slow and told us all... More

I've been living in Boston for a couple of months, and this was a really great way to get to know the area and the history here. The guide was really fun and knowledgeable. We're stopped and talking for most of the time, so slower runners won't have a problem catching/keeping up.

We were having a girls weekend in Boston and one of the girls suggested the Freedom Trail Run. We thought it would be a fun way to tour the city and learn some history. We were not disappointed. The tour guides were very nice and knowledgable. It helped that the weather was perfect; a little chilly but what you should... More

My 14 year old son and I really enjoyed this tour. The guides were funny and knowledgable. If you can do this run at the front end of your visit, it will help you get oriented to where things are in the city. It is about a 5K run, but the pace is not too strenuous and there are 16... More

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown
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 your camera ready to capture its peaceful beauty in the middle of a bustling city. Continue on through the Gardens and take in some open green space at the Boston Common, where you can spend time throwing a frisbee, sitting on a park bench, or, in the winter time, skating on the frog pond. Head north from the end of the Common to see the golden dome of the State House, and travel through government center to Quincy Market and Faneuil Hall, both a historic and popular destination worth a quick visit for a first time to Boston. Head to Long Wharf to visit the Aquarium, or catch a boat to Charlestown or even Cape Cod.
