    Tom says "The Freedom Trail can be knocked out in a couple hours and takes you to a lot of good historical sites. Also there's an app for narration.

    Great way to see historical sites. You can do it in a couple of hours, or do all the side trips (and pubs) :-) and take all day.

    Great history, and rather surreal as you go from site to site, and each are surrounded by tall buildings, cars, etc., modern day Boston. Bring water if it's a hot, humid day, like ours was.

  • Trevor N.

    After you're done walking the Freedom Trail take a ride to Cambridge and relax in one of the lawn chairs in the Harvard yard. By the time you're done with the trail it will feel like heaven!

    This is one of my favorite things to do when I go to Boston. So much history and the North End is wonderful!

    The 2½-mile walking route begins at Boston Common. There are the expected museums — Paul Revere’s house, for example. Read more

    take some time and wander around. best to bring a map or snap a pic of the full trail as its easy to get lost at times.

    Save your energy and take your time if you're starting in the south. You'll need it for the 300 step climb up Bunker Hill Monument that awaits you at the end.

    A must see when visiting Boston. Get a little exercise, stop by Paul Revere's house and enjoy Faneuil Hall! History buff or not - it's a must.

    A great way to see the best of Boston. It's an easy walk, you can take plenty of side trips along the way, and there's a red line to keep you on track.

    Divide it in two and walk half one day, the other half the next, devoting some time to enjoying the surrounding neighborhoods. It's the best way to put history in context with the modern city. Read more

    Don't walk up the bunker hill monument if you smoke

    Skip paying to enter Paul Revere house. Not much to see and not worth the fee. Take a pic from the street.
