Tenth grade social studies a little foggy? Or perhaps you’re a bona fide history buff. Regardless, you’ll delight in a trip down The Freedom Trail. The 2.5-mile red brick road takes you in and around 16 national sites, museums, parks, burial grounds and historic markers illustrating Boston’s rich Colonial history and pivotal role in the 1775 American Revolution. Purchase an audio tour from our concierge team and make a day or afternoon of it. Don’t miss Paul Revere’s house and the Old Church where patriots hung lanterns to illuminate his famous midnight ride.
Picture the Puritans strolling along the pastures back in the early 1600s at American’s very first public park. Colonists bought the original 44 acres from European settlers in 1634 to establish downtown’s Boston Common, an icon just a short walk from the hotel, also the start of The Freedom Trail.
