Walking Tours in Boston Including Harvard University Visits  November 18, 2012 – 02:53 pm

Beacon Hill, BostonMajor tourist draws of Boston include Fenway Park, Freedom Trail, Boston Common, Beacon Hill, Boston Tea Party Ship and Museum, The Boston Pops and of course, Harvard University. The city’s essence of nostalgia and grandeur of yester years and current vibe is best captured by the various walking tours in Boston made available by experts and volunteers.

Boston is served by 33 major airlines from around the world and is one of the oldest cities in America. It is the largest city in New England and is served by one major international airport called Logan International Airport. If you are visiting several cities in New England and want to avoid a bigger airport, T.F. Green Airport in Providence, Rhode Island may be the best option because it is only 60 miles away.

The city of Boston is well established in America as a college town with over 50 colleges and 200 others spread out throughout the state of Massachusetts. In fact it is known all over the world as a place to pursue the best higher education.

Out of the many ways of visiting the major attractions in Boston, we think the best way to discover the city is by foot. Walking tours are easy if you have a good pair of shoes and a great attitude. Some of the walking tours are only suitable for those who are fit and adventurous as there are steeply-angled streets and stairs to climb in parts of the tour.

Here are five walking tours we recommend:

One: The Freedom Trail Walking Tour
Freedom Trail is a 2.5 mile walk through 16 historical sites in Boston. You will be walking on a brick-lined route and exploring the treasures of the city with a past. Find out more about the meeting houses, churches, cemeteries, homes, schools and work places.

Learn about the life of our forefathers who fought for freedom and discover more about the American Revolution as you walk on the trail that the freedom fighters did a few hundred years ago.

Here is a link to Freedom Trail Walk where you will find maps, suggestions to plan your trip and more.

Two: Beacon Hill Walking Tour
No visitor should miss Beacon Hill. It is a National Historic District with working gas lamps, brick sidewalks, 19th century row houses that include the works of architect Charles Bulfinch on Mount Vernon. See the ancient elms, ironwork hangs of houses, foot scrapers on doorsteps and more. Check out 85 Mt. Vernon Street which has been featured in movies.

Sites of Boston in winter

Hi My family and I have a guest visiting from the Fillipines. She and my 11 yo daughter will be visiting Boston most likely by car tomorrow. My 9 yo may be along too.
My friend expressed an interest in Paul Revere's house and Harvard University for tomorrow. On Tuesday, she will visit the Museum of Fine Arts and possibly the Gardner Museum. Though I am from Boston and am familiar with many of the sites, I would appreciate any advice about one other site to combine with Harvard and Revere's house keeping in mind the ages. It will be VERY cold too.
We are choosing from among USS Constitution, Bunker Hill, Old North Church, Back Bay, Copley Square, Fanueil Hall, etc.
