Went in the middle of Feb. it was very lively and fun. It’s about a three mile walk that ends at bunker hill. There’s a lot of restaurants right by the trails. Just follow the brick road!

Order Boston cream pie at Omni Parker 24 hrs ahead of time, eat at bar. Yum! Don’t stay there, over-priced for average. Freedom Trail: History comes alive! Great food and drink choices!

I spent a wintry day on the Freedom Trail last Friday and can highly recommend this as a good thing to do on a crisp, cold day. Crowds at a minimum! No sweating or jostling! Smaller crowds at the historic sites. The sites are wonderful...More

Although a lot of guided tours are provided on the internet, I strongly suggest one could take the trail oneself. The most amazing part are between the Boston Common and the Faneuil Hall. A lot of great places worth to go. But most of them...More

Start at Boston Common and follow the bricks inlaid in the pavement which take you around the historical sights of Boston. A must for any first time visitor.

The Freedom Trail is a must to do when visiting Boston. I loved hearing about and seeing all the history along the trail while visiting so many historical sites. It was quite an eye-opener to see all the history we learned about in our school...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

You can start at the information center on the Boston Common on Trement Street. It is a bit of a walk from the Hilton so taking the green line train (the T) inbound to Park street is the easiest way to get there. You can... More
