In front of the old City Hall, you should not miss this statue of Benjamin Franklin. It's a big historic value. You have to take a good look, it's between the bushes and trees.

Boston has tons of statues and they're all really done well. This one holds true to that. Does someone clean them because they're not usually this clean. Looks great!

The first time we walked the Freedom Trail I wasn't able to find this statue. The second time, I took a closer look and found the base of the statue, but no statue.

This beautiful statute of Benjamin Franklin is worth pausing beside during walks along the Freedom Trail. He was such a pivotal man in our history, and we loved this gorgeous statute of this historic man!

Worth a look when you are walking the Freedom Trail. The bronze sculpture is a standing representation, apparently realistic. Not really interesting, in fact. But worth a few minutes to stop and think about Franklin when you're on the Trail.

Honestly the grave site in Philly is more meaningful, but a stop here is worth honoring one of the most important figures of our history AND founder of our culture of entrepreneurship and innovation. Ben set us on a course that makes America distinct in...More

The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with
historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through
one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston
Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling
statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the
pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where,
during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting
children and eager tourists through the pond. Have
