The Freedom Trail is a physical history lesson of American Independence. Best taken initially on hop on hop off bus then leisurely walk the trail to learn intimate details of that period.

Well marked out trail through and by the historic sights in Boston. Mainly focusing on the American Revolution. It's a good long walk, but a good way to learn American revolutionary history well also seeing Boston. Follow the red bricks.

Every town should have one. Just follow the trail. The stops are at your own pace but if you can walk on to the end, and into the Dockyard. You can catch the ferry back into town.
