    Stop At: Boston Common, 139 Tremont St, Boston, MA 02111-1318

    Embark on this adventure into America's Revolutionary past at the heart of old Boston: the Boston Common. This spacious green has been a part of the city since it's early colonial beginnings. We'll begin the tour by the Visitor Center and find the red-brick path. As we follow the path, we'll dive back in time to the 1700s and set the scene....

    Duration: 10 minutes

    Stop At: Massachusetts State House, 24 Beacon St, Boston, MA 02133, USA

    The first stop along our red-bricked Freedom Trail tour is right at the corner of Boston Common: the Massachusetts State House! This building is both historic and architecturally beautiful.... and of course, we can't forget about it's eye-catching golden dome! We'll pause in front of the State House to catch up on a couple of key Revolutionary War characters (and soon-to-be American heroes) and a little colonial history. We'll also take a look at the Robert G Shaw and 54th Memorial, which stands opposite the State House. Who was Shaw and what made the 54th Regiment so significant? We'll get into all of those details right here.

    Duration: 10 minutes

    Stop At: Park Street Church, 1 Park St, Boston, MA 02108, USA

    From the State House and Shaw Memorial, we'll continue following the Freedom Trail. That brings us through Boston Common and out to the Park Street Church. As we walk, we'll dive into the most important question of all: what prompted the Revolutionary War? As we peel back the layers, we discover that the battle for American Independence was one falling domino in a long chain of dominos stretching across multiple continents and older wars...

    Duration: 10 minutes

    Stop At: Granary Burying Ground, Tremont St, Boston, MA 02108, USA

    This brings us to the truly ancient Granary Burying Ground! Established in 1660, this is only Boston's third-oldest burying ground. Can you imagine what's changed in the last 400 years? Well for one thing, this ground is so old it actually holds the grave of Mother Goose. We still hear her stories today! We'll also visit the graves of American legends like Paul Revere, Robert Paine, and James Otis. And we can't miss John Hancock and Sam Adams' graves either! Lastly, we'll visit the graves of those killed in the Boston Massacre, one of the stepping stones to the full-blown revolution. We'll be heading to the site of this Massacre later.

    Duration: 10 minutes

    Stop At: Boston Latin School Association, 27 School St, Boston, MA 02108, USA

    From the Granary, we'll continue following the Freedom Trail's red bricks. We'll check out the King's Chapel along the way and pause in front of the Latin School. This historic site contains a number of fun statues to pose with (including a donkey!) and quite a lot of rich history to dive into.

    Duration: 10 minutes

    Stop At: Boston Irish Famine Memorial, Washington St., Boston, MA

    A few steps down from the Latin School, we'll find the Irish Famine Memorial. Here we'll jump a bit later into Boston history and talk about the new wave of immigrants after the revolution. We'll learn about the hardships they faced and overcame... and where these communities are today.

    Duration: 10 minutes

    Stop At: Old South Meeting House, 310 Washington St, Boston, MA 02108-4616

    Just across the street from the Irish Famine Memorial, we'll find the historic Old South Meeting House. This small, tucked-away building is easy to miss but we'll pause in front of it. Here, we'll be transported back in time to one of the most fateful events leading up to the Revolutionary War... the Boston Tea Party. We'll learn all about the organizers, their motivations, and of course the consequences of their "tea party".

    Duration: 10 minutes

    Stop At: Old Corner Book Store, 283 Washington St, Boston, MA 02108, USA

    As we continue along the Freedom Trail, we'll learn more about the Tea Party and the Sons of Liberty who were behind it. We'll also pass the historic Old Corner Bookstore while walking and dive into it's connection to colonial Bostonians.

    Duration: 10 minutes

    Stop At: Old State House, 206 Washington St, Boston, MA 02109, USA

    Our red-brick road finally brings us to one of the most popular stops along the Freedom Trail: the Old State House. We'll pause here to identify key architectural features and learn about its significance (and long history!). Then, we'll walk around to the other side...

    Duration: 10 minutes

    Stop At: Boston Massacre Site, Corner of State and, Congress St, Boston, MA 02109, USA

    ... to see the site of the infamous Boston Massacre! But was it a massacre? Or just a rowdy riot, as the British said? We'll dive into the thrilling tale while standing at the very spot where history unfolded. We'll also learn about Crispus Attacuks, an honored American hero.

    Duration: 10 minutes

    Stop At: Faneuil Hall Marketplace, 4 S Market St, Boston, MA 02109, USA

    We'll follow the Freedom Trail to another popular resting spot: Faneuil Hall and Quincy Market! First we'll explore the site's fascinating history and then explore its huge range of food options!

    Duration: 10 minutes

    Stop At: Haymarket, 100 Hanover St, Boston, MA 02108, USA

    As we continue our journey along the red-bricked path of the Freedom Trail, we'll also dive into the story of the historic Haymarket, the new and striking Holocaust Memorial out in front, and the stunning view of the Custom House Tower a little beyond. We'll learn a bit about each of these sites as we make our way to another popular stop.

    Duration: 10 minutes

    Stop At: The Paul Revere House, 19 N Square, Boston, MA 02113, USA

    Our path brings us to another popular stop along the Freedom Trail: Paul Revere's House! Here we'll learn about Paul Revere's famous "Midnight Ride", it's immortalization in a poem by Henry Wadsworth-Longfellow, and the truths and myths behind this historic moment.

    Duration: 10 minutes

    Stop At: Old North Church, 193 Salem St, Boston, MA 02113, USA

    From Paul Revere's House, we'll make our way to the Old North Church. This is the iconic site where the "one if by land, two if by sea" lanterns were lit, silently signalling the British troops' movements to colonial revolutionaries.

    Duration: 10 minutes

    Stop At: Copp's Hill Burying Ground, Hull St, Boston, MA 02113, USA

    From the Old North Church, we'll follow the Freedom Trail farther up to the historic Copp's Hill Burying Ground. This historic cemetery in Boston's North End is older than the Granary... but only by a year!

    Duration: 10 minutes

    Stop At: USS Constitution Museum, Building 22, Charlestown Navy Yard, Charlestown, MA 02129, USA

    Our last few stops are a little farther along, over the bridge and into the Charlestown Navy Yard. There we'll see the historic and impressive USS Constitution -- and learn all about her epic battle against the Guerriere. We'll explore the naval battles of the War for Independence in more detail while at this historic site.

    Duration: 10 minutes
