Definitely a not-to-miss experience during your Boston visit. The Freedom Trail is about a 2 1/2 mile historic walking path, marked in red bricks, that will take you on a journey through time when America was struggling to make its mark as an independent nation. This trail will lead you to the history of America through the various historical sites--from parks, churches, burial grounds, among other interests of historic significance.

It is best to obtain a free map from the Information Center at the Boston Common and do a self-guided walk through this trail. There is also a free ranger-guided group walk from the Old State House.
