Bostonian’s concern with preserving the city's colonial history created the 2.5-mile Freedom Trail in the 1950s. The walking trail, identified by red bricks embedded in the pavement, includes 16 significant national historic sites. These authentic American treasures include burying grounds, churches, museums, parks, and old ironsides. Along with a number of historic markers, these sites tell the story of America's fight for independence and the establishment of a new nation.
Led by a friendly and knowledgeable 18th century costumed guide, a 90-minute walking tour is a wonderful way to experience the Freedom Trail. The mix of fun, humor, and history provides a hands-on experience that will make you feel as if you are actually living the days of the Revolution. The Freedom Trail and the city of Boston create a backdrop like no other for exploring the rich history of the brave people and key events that led to the American Revolution, the momentous break from Great Britain, and the subsequent shaping of American republic.
On this tour you’ll walk by The Boston Common which is the oldest city park in the United States, established in 1634. The State House, Park Street Church, Granary Burying Ground, Paul Revere’s House, and Faneuil Hall are a few other sites you’ll visit during the tour. This walk down memory lane is the best and one of the most formal ways to learn about significant events that led up to the independence of a nation.
