Welcome to the Freedom Trail, a 2.5-mile, red-lined route that leads you to 16 historically significant sites — each one an authentic treasure. Explore museums and meetinghouses, churches, and burying grounds. Learn about the brave people who shaped our nation. Discover the rich history of the American Revolution, as it began in Boston, where every step tells a story.
Boston’s famous 2.5 mile journey takes you through 16 sights of historical significance, from America’s oldest park, Boston Common, to the USS Constitution in Charleston. A brick pathway guides you along the way. You will want to bring the camera along as you will pass some of the country’s oldest cemeteries, most beautiful architecture and parks, and most important landmarks. A trip to Boston is not complete until you embark upon the Freedom Trail.
