Freedom Trail – July 1st

Okay, this isn’t hiking, but… it is well worth the walk! If you have never walked the Freedom Trail in Boston, I highly recommend it! It is s a 2.5-mile-long (4.0 km) path marked with red brick through downtown Boston, that passes by 16 locations significant to the history of the United States – from the Boston Common to the Bunker Hill  Monument in Charlestown.

Along the trail you will find ground markers, graveyards, churches and buildings, and the USS Constitution. Most of the sites are free or suggest donations but the Old South Meeting House, the Old State House, and the Paul Revere House charge admission.

We ended our day with Wicked at the Boston Opera House 😉

Happy trails!
