With only three days in Boston, the Freedom Trail was a top priority for me and it’s one of the best ways to see the city. It starts in Boston Common where you can follow a narrow red brick path throughout the entire city all the way to the Bunker Hill Monument.
My favorite stops were the Granary Burying Ground, the home of Paul Revere’s grave site, Fanueil Hall and the Quincy Market, Paul Revere’s House, and the Bunker Hill Monument.
I loved visiting Rome because you can walk through town and encounter a historic monument that sits across the street from a modern restaurant or cafe, and I thought Boston was a lot like Rome in that respect. My friend and I were exhausted from walking all day in the summer heat and humidity but we did get to see so much of the city in just one day so the trail was well worth it to us.
