When one visits Boston, one must walk the Freedom Trail.
This is a true statement. Everyone that visits walks the Freedom Trail. Along the trail you get to not only see Boston, but you get to see historical sites along the way. The Freedom Trail is a 2.5 mile walk.
The sights that you will see are: The Boston Commons, Massachusetts State House, Park Street Church, Granary Burying Ground, King's Chapel, King's Chapel Burying Ground, Benjamin Franklin Statue + Boston Latin School, Old Corner Book Store, Old South Meeting House, Old State House, Site of Boston Massacre, Faneuil Hall, Paul Revere House, Old North Church, Copp's Hill Burying Grounds, Bunker Hill Monument, USS Constitution.
When I first moved to Boston, I only did part of the trail, but never finished it. With the family in town, I decided that it was time to walk the whole trail and see everything. Luckily, the weather was perfect when we went exploring. It was sunny and the wind was blowing. It was perfect weather out in the sun. We really couldn't have asked for a better day. We decided to take our time while walking the trail so we could absorb everything as we went along.
A little known fact that I discovered, was that there is a great hall above Faneuil Hall that you can go look at. There is a sign in the lower level of the Hall that tells you if it is open or closed. The stairs are a bit hard to find, but once you do, the experience is worth it.
One of my favorite parts of the whole trail was coming to the end at the Navy Yard. We were able to see the city skyline. It was so beautiful. Of course, it was perfect for photo ops.
