The Freedom Trail May 14, 2013
The Freedom Trail is a red brick line that goes through Boston and takes you by many of the important sites in Boston that you read in the history books from the Revolutionary War time frame. It is a part of Boston National Historical Park. Along this trail you can rediscover you American history, including the firebrands like Samuel Adams and Paul Revere. You can see important sites, that Faneuil Hall and the Boston Massacre Site. You can see where the Battle of Bunker Hill took place and the USS Constitution.

Living on the West Coast, all the early Revolutionary History is so far away. It is something I have always been interested in. I find it amazing that so many flawed people could come together and form this great country. The Freedom Trail reminds us about this cradle of our revolution.

Freedom Trail May 16, 2011
Now I am not much on history but this tour was amazing! It is a great way to familiarize yourself with the streets of Boston as well as learn a thing or 2 about it's history. It takes you all over Boston so I would suggest wearing comfy clothes and shoes! But it is an awesome experience and you find out things you would have otherwise never even heard of. We stopped for lunch about halfway through at Quincy Market and it was delicious, definitely go there if you have a chance! Great vendors and a wide variety of amazing food :)

Follow the Trail to Freedom Apr 27, 2011
To get an oversight of historical Boston, follow the Freedom Trail! You will see a red line on the sidewalk (either in red brick or a painted red line) that leads you around the city to some of its well-known landmarks, such as the Boston Common, Quincy Market, etc.

If you want to take the tour with a guide in period costume, it does cost money, but if you're following the Trail on your own, it's free.

Might be a hot hike in August, but if you've never been to Boston the Freedom Trail is a must! Head for Boston Commons and begin following the trail of bricks (two bricks wide). If memory serves it is a bit over two miles...and since you are on foot you need to return!Your trek will be rewarded with an astonsihing variety of history --- everything from Paul Revere's house and the Old North Church to Ben Franklin. You even plod over the site of the Boston Massacre (and it wasn't until my second time that I realized it is marked in a little traffic island in the middle of the street!). At the end is the USS Constitution and the Bunker Hill Monument. Hopefully you have saved enough energy to climb the steps to the top of the Bunker Hill Monument --- you are rewarded with a splendid view that really has you visualizing that first day of the revolution.Makes for a splendid half-day adventure and really sets an appropriate tone for your stay in Boston!

I loved this walk, but my advice is this: try not to do it in the middle of February in the snow. :)
