The trail led us to the historical parts of the city. We used it to get places and to lead us home. Very interesting and fun things along the way.

You’ll never regret this. I suggest doing this with a guide. We did not and even though we got a lot from it, I will do a guided tour next time I’m in Boston.

The trail was very interesting, and brought you to the interesting places, like the old city hall, the state House, etc. Following a brick trail was very unusual but the walk was great! I would definitely go there if I had not gone to Boston...More

The walk was very insightful and happy I was able to burn off some calories from all the wonderful restaurants along the trail. A great historical and educational experience.

What a great way to experience Boston history. I would highly recommend. It’s a great walk, a lot to see, and you can customize your time along the way. For example, we detoured from the trail to stop at Mikes pastry close by. Yum!

We went to Boston first, then went to Maine. Boston is pretty expensive to stay downtown. We stayed in Salem, MA, which is pretty historical and has some great places to see and eat. The trip into Boston is pretty simple... More
