This is an interesting tour with many unusual facts and stops along the way. I particularly enjoyed the stops along the “Underground Railway”. I had no idea that Boston had such a rich Civil War history including the Museum of African American History on Beacon Hill. You can move at your own pace and take a break at any time as it covers a lot of ground. Beth D.
