Easy, historic urban trail shows you some of the highlights of downtown Boston.

Park along the trail and then hop on. The Freedom Trail allows you to not only see the most beautiful parts of Boston (which is an absolutely gorgeous city) but you can learn some history too! Head off the trail a bit to explore the Charles River, the waterfront near the aquarium and picturesque Beacon Hill. If you have a nice day and want an easy way to see the best parts of Boston, this is definitely the way to do it!

Fun tour of history

Spent an enjoyable day on the trail. Not sure there is a better way to get an overview of Boston.

A Must Do

It's pretty touristy, but as a Massachusetts native I highly recommend walking this if not just for the experience.
