I loved Boston so much that I had to do another photo diary all about it. The New England city is one of the oldest city in the United States. You don’t realize how historic the city really is until you walk around the downtown area. It played such a central role in the American Revolution from the Boston Tea Party to Paul Revere’s Midnight Ride. Thankfully, you can still relive many of these historic moments thanks to the Freedom Trail.
The Freedom Trail is a historic path that travels through downtown Boston. On the 2.5-mile-long brick trail, you can walk by 16 locations connected to significant moments in U.S. history. It begins at the Boston Common and ends at the Bunker Hill Monument in Charleston. Anyone can follow the trail to find historic sites that mostly involve suggested donations with stops ranging from graveyards to churches and buildings.
Walking the Freedom Trail is plausible to do in one day, but it might be easier to break it up in parts if you’re a history buff and would like to spend more time at each stop. Along the way, you’ll find yourself catching sites of other parts of Boston including the Boston Harbor and North End, known as Boston’s Little Italy. You can also stop by the many restaurants and bars on the way—eat seafood at Union Oyster House since it is one of the oldest operating restaurants in our country.
