Freedom Trail Historic Holiday Stroll

Freedom Trail Historic Holiday Stroll

Celebrate the holiday season on the Freedom Trail’s annual Historic Holiday Stroll. The festive atmosphere of the city, set against the unique backdrop of Boston’s historic sites and the American Revolution, makes this merry 90-minute tour a perfect way to celebrate the holidays.

Walk the Freedom Trail and discover how Boston’s holiday traditions evolved on the Stroll offered Thursdays through Sundays at 3:30 p.m. from November 19 through January 2016.

Led by 19th-century Dickensian costumed guides departing from the ArtsBoston BosTix booth at Faneuil Hall, the Stroll is complete with a tour of holiday lights and Christmas trees along the Freedom Trail and an exclusive visit to the Omni Parker House for signature refreshments and world-famous Boston Cream Pie.

“The Freedom Trail Historic Holiday Stroll brings history to life and is an ideal holiday tradition,” said Suzanne Taylor, Freedom Trail Foundation Executive Director. “Reminiscent of the 19th-century ‘A Christmas Carol’, the Stroll invites visitors to experience Boston’s historic sites while learning about our rich holiday tradition.”

Following the Stroll, guests receive discounts off museum store purchases at Freedom Trail sites, including the Old South Meeting House, Old State House, Paul Revere House, and Old North Church (valid with any Historic Holiday Stroll receipt from November through February). As a special bonus for the first time ever, all participants are entered to win a brunch for two at the award-winning Parker’s Restaurant at the Omni Parker House.

Tickets are $29 for adults and $19 for children and include a $1 donation to the Freedom Trail Foundation’s Preservation Fund. Reservations are required 24 hours in advance. The Freedom Trail Historic Holiday Stroll may also be booked as a private family or group tour.

The Freedom Trail Foundation continues to offer daily public Walk Into History Tours throughout the season and during the winter months. Additionally, the Freedom Trail’s Historic Pub Crawl, all about fermenting revolution in Boston’s 18th-century drinking establishments, which must be booked by reservation, is offered weekly on Tuesdays at 5:30 p.m. All Freedom Trail tours are available as private family or group tours by reservation.
