There are sixteen historic sites to visit while on the trail, including the home of Paul Revere and also the site of the Boston Massacre. On any day, you can find members of the Freedom Trail Players who will walk with you and give you a guided tour of the trail. These historical players take over the roles of various 17th and 18th century citizens.
No trip to Boston would be complete without stopping by Fenway Park. Opening in 1912, it’s the oldest ballpark today that’s still in active use. The home of baseball’s Red Sox and the Green Monster, the ballpark’s massive left-field wall, Fenway Park is a great way to spend a day. Even if you don’t like baseball, it’s a considerable place to tour for its history. Alternatively, simply relax with a hot dog or some nachos and root for the home team while you’re there.
As you’ll see, Boston is full of things to see and do, but hopefully this short guide will have you spending a day seeing some of the city’s best. Not having time to see everything in one day just means you’ll have to visit again. When it comes to Boston, that’s not a bad thing at all.
