Your Itinerary

Boston Common

Embark on this adventure into America's Revolutionary past at the heart of old Boston: the Boston Common. This spacious green has been a part of the city since it's early colonial beginnings. We'll begin the tour by the Visitor Center and find the red-brick path. As we follow the path, we'll dive back in time to the 1700s and set the scene..

Freedom Trail

The Freedom Trail is a 2.5-mile-long path through downtown Boston, Massachusetts, that passes by 16 locations significant to the history of the United States. Marked largely with brick, it winds between Boston Common to the Bunker Hill Monument in Charlestown.

Park Street Church

From the State House and Shaw Memorial, we'll continue following the Freedom Trail. That brings us through Boston Common and out to the Park Street Church. As we walk, we'll dive into the most important question of all: what prompted the Revolutionary War? As we peel back the layers, we discover that the battle for American Independence was one falling domino in a long chain of dominos stretching across multiple continents and older wars.

Admission Not Included

Granary Burying Ground

This brings us to the truly ancient Granary Burying Ground! Established in 1660, this is only Boston's third-oldest burying ground. Can you imagine what's changed in the last 400 years? Well for one thing, this ground is so old it actually holds the grave of Mother Goose. We still hear her stories today! We'll also visit the graves of American legends like Paul Revere, Robert Paine, and James Otis. And we can't miss John Hancock and Sam Adams' graves either! Lastly, we'll visit the graves of those killed in the Boston Massacre, one of the stepping stones to the full-blown revolution. We'll be heading to the site of this Massacre later.

Massachusetts State House

The first stop along our red-bricked Freedom Trail tour is right at the corner of Boston Common: the Massachusetts State House! This building is both historic and architecturally beautiful.... and of course, we can't forget about it's eye-catching golden dome! We'll pause in front of the State House to catch up on a couple of key Revolutionary War characters (and soon-to-be American heroes) and a little colonial history. We'll also take a look at the Robert G Shaw and 54th Memorial, which stands opposite the State House. Who was Shaw and what made the 54th Regiment so significant? We'll get into all of those details right here.

Admission Not Included

Boston Irish Famine Memorial

A few steps down from the Latin School, we'll find the Irish Famine Memorial. Here we'll jump a bit later into Boston history and talk about the new wave of immigrants after the revolution. We'll learn about the hardships they faced and overcame... and where these communities are today.

Old South Meeting House

(Pass by)

Just across the street from the Irish Famine Memorial, we'll find the historic Old South Meeting House. This small, tucked-away building is easy to miss but we'll pause in front of it. Here, we'll be transported back in time to one of the most fateful events leading up the Revolutionary War... the Boston Tea Party. We'll learn all about the organizers, their motivations, and of course the consequences of their "tea party".

Boston Latin School

From the Granary, we'll continue following the Freedom Trail's red bricks. We'll check out the King's Chapel along the way and pause in front of the Latin School. This historic site contains a number of fun statues to pose with (including a donkey!) and quite a lot of rich history to dive into.

Admission Not Included

Old State House

Our red-brick road finally brings us to one of the most popular stops along the Freedom Trail: the Old State House. We'll pause here to identify key architectural features and learn about their significance (and long history!). Then, we'll walk around to the other side.

Admission Not Included

Boston Massacre Site

... to see the site of the infamous Boston Massacre! But was it a massacre? Or just a rowdy riot, as the British said? We'll dive into the thrilling tale while standing at the very spot where history unfolded. We'll also learn about Crispus Attacuks, an honored American hero.

Old Corner Bookstore

As we continue along the Freedom Trail, we'll learn more about the Tea Party and the Sons of Liberty who were behind it. We'll also pass the historic Old Corner Bookstore while walking and dive into its connection to colonial Bostonians.

Admission Not Included

Haymarket

As we continue our journey along the red-bricked path of the Freedom Trail, we'll also dive into the story of the historic Haymarket, the new and striking Holocaust Memorial out in front, and the stunning view of the Custom House Tower a little beyond. We'll learn a bit about each of these sites as we make our way to another popular stop.

The Paul Revere House

Our path brings us to another popular stop along the Freedom Trail: Paul Revere's House! Here we'll learn about Paul Revere's famous "Midnight Ride", its immortalization in a poem by Henry Wadsworth-Longfellow, and the truths and myths behind this historic moment.

Admission Not Included

Faneuil Hall Marketplace

We'll follow the Freedom Trail to another popular resting spot: Faneuil Hall and Quincy Market! First, we'll explore the site's fascinating history and then explore its huge range of food options!

Copp's Hill Burying Ground

From the Old North Church, we'll follow the Freedom Trail farther up to the historic Copp's Hill Burying Ground. This historic cemetery in Boston's North End is older than the Granary... but only by a year!

USS Constitution

(Pass by)

Our last few stops are a little farther along, over the bridge and into the Charlestown Navy Yard. There we'll see the historic and impressive USS Constitution -- and learn all about her epic battle against the Guerriere. We'll explore the naval battles of the War for Independence in more detail while at this historic site.

Bunker Hill Monument

Finally we'll follow the Freedom Trail up to the Bunker Hill Monument, built to commemorate the Battle of Bunker Hill. We'll walk around this hill, exploring the site of this epic battle and getting an understanding of the brutality and intensity of the battle for freedom. This site is the last along our comprehensive tour along Boston's historic Freedom Trail.

Old North Church & Historic Site

From Paul Revere's House, we'll make our way to the Old North Church. This is the iconic site where the "one if by land, two if by sea" lanterns were lit, silently signaling the British troops' movements to colonial revolutionaries.

Complete waste of money. The app didn't work. Very poor instructions. I want my money back. I'm not wasting any more time trying to fill up space.

Anette_S

Pierre_C

Could not get good GPS connection, impossible to follow instructions, wrong product for this city with heavy trafic

Vickey E

This was a great option. You could start anywhere, take your time, stop anywhere and pick up another day. The information and GPS were great!

Lori_M

This was the best value. The Freedom Trail directions, descriptions and audio were spot on. My favorite spot was definitely the Granary Graveyard. My entire family enjoyed every moment of this tour. I world highly recommend it to everyone!

Paul_B

Audio wasn’t always clear could have been louder - the timing of some bits was sometimes off a little The trail also had roadworks so they didn’t help

Eric_Y

The audio tour was very flexible. It allowed us to start and stop multiple times and rewind allowed us to review information as needed. It was really good for a single person as the volume should have been louder for additional listeners.

Lilie_B

Wonderful self guided tour l'll highly recommended if you want to learn at your own pace... You can stop and start back on the tour as you please. Two thumbs-up👍

johnhH31GO

It's difficult, but it's simple enough to accomplish with the whole family! Got a great lesson on American History. The best part is that for some question we had to actually look for clues to get answers. Recommend.
