Freedom Trail

What is the Freedom Trail?

Boston’s official Freedom Trail® Tours take you to places where history was made! Walk Into History along the iconic Freedom Trail – the 2.5 mile red line leading to nationally significant historic sites, each one an authentic treasure.  Preserved and dedicated by the citizens of Boston in 1951, the Freedom Trail is a unique collection of museums, churches, meeting houses, burying grounds, parks, a ship, and historic markers that tell the story of the American Revolution and beyond.  Led by 18th-century costumed Freedom Trail Players®, tours feature tales of high treason, mob agitations, revolutionary actions, and partisan fights of the American Revolution. Discover the rich history of the American Revolution, as it began in Boston, where every step tells a story.
