Freedom Trail

Due to its size, Boston is a very accessible city. Its reputation as a walking city relies on the creation of one of America's first historic walking tours, The Freedom Trail.

The Freedom Trail Foundation continues to work to preserve this perfect introduction to Colonial Revolutionary Boston. The Trail takes the visitor to 16 historical sites in the course of two or three hours and covers two and a half centuries of America's most significant past. A red brick or painted line connects the sites on the Trail and serves as a guide.

Since the past and the present live alongside the Trail, its visitors have the opportunity to see the City as it truly is. Many visitors prefer to linger and study the many exhibits, thus a full day or more can be devoted to browsing along the Trail.

One can take a self-guided tour or one of the many tours available through the Boston Common Visitors Center at 148 Tremont Street or the Bostix Booth located at Faneuil Hall. If you prefer to ride, you can pay for one of the trolley tours, which are unofficial guided tours, but do take the rider to many of the sites along the Trail and allow one to disembark at selected stops. To find out more about guided tours contact the Greater Boston Convention and Visitors Bureau.

The Freedom Trail is governed by the Freedom Trail Commission.

Anyone Tried the Go Boston Card??

I saw another person posting about this, so I thought I would ask anyone if they've had a good experience with it. My brother and his wife are coming to Boston to visit in June and i wanted to take them to a number of Boston attractions. I've heard of something called the Boston Go Card ( which apparently gets unlimited access to things like Freedom Trail, Museum of Science, etc. Has anyone had a good experience with this? It looks like it would save a lot of money with very little hassell.

To do

New England is great, Boston is a fav of many
-local food/restaurants worth trying if you like a certain ethnic fare, i.e. Italian, Greek, etc
-whale watching, its a great way to spend 3 or so hours on the water-BRING camera
-walk the Freedom Trail in Boston
-check out for specifics, i/e, attractions, special stores, etc.
-take swim suit, was in New Hampshire a couple years ago and it was really hot great day for beach
