the freedom trail

Member Rating 3 out of 5 by rhiannon1968 on February 5, 2002

It's a self-guided walking tour of Boston's most important landmarks of colonial Boston. The starting point is at Boston Common, and to do it you only have to follow the red line painted on the pavement. It takes you past all the sights. It's important to get the free leaflet that explains you what all the places are, though, especially if you are not too familiar with American history.
There are 16 points of interest along the trail, which I'll just list here below. The walk, including visits and a few stops for lunch a drinks will take about a day.
