We started in Boston Commons at about 9:00 am and ended at Coop’s Hill Burying Ground about 2:45 pm. We used a AAA Tour Book guide and self guided ourselves for the most part. Enjoyed the day very much.

It was a simple experience to follow the red brick line and hear about the early warriors for freedom. A classic simple adventure not to be missed especially with a guide.
