Our guide was Emily. We took our family for a little educational trip which included the Freedom Trail. Emily was very thorough and informative. We all learned a lot from her.

This is an important trail for any Patriot to walk. Although I am not an American, I felt strong historical connection on this trail. Country must remember its beginnings and its founders. A definite must for any American who can make the trip.

Brings the revolution to life, and the red line helps one navigate the center city. Building plaques and costumed guides add detail to the country's history.

The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with
historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through
one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston
Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling
statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the
pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where,
during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting
children and eager tourists through the pond. Have
