After my girlfriend pointed it out, finally realized that all the sights along the Freedom Trail are connected by a line in the sidewalks. Makes it very easy to find the next sight, especially for those not used to walking around big cities. We concentrated...More

First day on our travels and we decided to attack the Freedom Trail. Really good way to see the sites and some good photo opportunities. Would recommend this to any first time visitors. My 11 year old enjoyed it too.

The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with
historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through
one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston
Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling
statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the
pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where,
during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting
children and eager tourists through the pond. Have
