With Independence Day fast approaching, what better time than to take a stroll around Boston along the Freedom Trail. We will begin in Charlestown, make our way over to the North End, down through Faneuil Hall, and swing over to Boston Common. Though going in reverse, we will walk the Freedom Trail in its entirety spanning over a dozen locations significant to the history of the United States.
We’ll explore burial grounds, climb a tower, walk around a warship, stroll through the city streets, and a crypt of an old church.
