Boston Massachusetts Freedom Trail

american history, boston

Boston is one of America’s most amazing history cities, and any visit there should include a walk along Boston’s Freedom Trail.   The trail is a walk down Boston and therefore America’s colonial history, and unlike most “trails” this one is physically defined by red bricks that are actually embedded in the sidewalk.      One can start at the beginning, middle or end of the trail and make their way through the now mostly modern streetscapes of Boston, stopping as long as you like at the many historical  sites along the trail.

Here, from the Freedom Trail’s official website, is more information about each of the featured sites.
