22 Ultimate Things to Do in Boston

Walk the Freedom Trail

One of Boston’s most famous, not to mention free, attractions is the Freedom Trail, a 2.5-mile line alternately painted red or paved in red brick which guides visitors to some of the city’s most important historic sights. Highlights along the trail, which officially includes 16 sites, are Faneuil Hall, Old North Church, the Paul Revere House, King’s Chapel and the Bunker Hill Monument. Begin a self-guided tour from Boston Common (pick up a map or download one); sign up for a free guided tour given by the National Park Service at Faneuil Hall; or book a tour with the Freedom Trail Foundation, where 18th-century costumed guides lead the way.
