Freedom Trail

Follow this 2.5-mile path for an amazing lesson on the birth of a nation. It runs from historic Boston Common, wending its way past 16 significant sites, including where the Boston Massacre started, Old North Church and Paul Revere’s House. The Trail can be joined anywhere along the way. And while it’s not difficult, if you stop to visit each attraction, you’ll be on your feet for hours.
