"Autumn foliage in Boston" Freedom Trail Tip by aukahkay

Freedom Trail, Boston: 124 reviews and 208 photos

  Boston Commons in autumn
by aukahkay

Boston, the capital city of Massachusetts, is the seat of higher learning on the eastern seaboard of the United States. World renowned universities such as Harvard University and Massachusetts Institute of Technology are located in Cambridge, a university town just north of downtown Boston. I was blessed to be able to visit Boston twice in autumn - in 1996 and again in 2003 when I attended a course at Joslin Diabetes Center in Boston.
Boston is beautiful in October. The autumn foliage is in its full glorious colours and the weather is crisp and cool. The Boston Commons is a lovely park right in the heart of the city. The historic Freedom Trail originates from the Boston Commons and is marked out by a red line on the ground all the way to the Bunker Hill monument. The Freedom Trail is a walking narrative of historic events in US history such as the liberation of slaves, Treaty of Paris and the Declaration of Independance.

Directions: From the Boston Commons, follow the red line.
