On a bright sunny day in Fall 2014, I decided to go walk the famed Freedom Trail that cuts through several scenic spots in Boston, MA. The trail begins at Park Street station on the red/green line. There are ample signage around guiding one on the Freedom Trail even without a map.
I modified the route to a shorter one to cover the wharf and aquarium area.
First stop: Boston Commons.
Massachusetts State House
Cranary Burial Ground
Along the way, you will see Tremont Temple across the street. It looks so grand. The carvings are so intricate.
Old City Hall
Irish Famine Memorial (just outside Walgreens)
Old Meeting House
Old State House
The next part of the Freedom Trail is a long walk to Beacon Hill. Hence, I decided to follow the crowd and head to Quincy Market for some “snacks”. Sadly, its really a tourist trap with overpriced food. Not recommended to dine here unless you want to pay exorbitant price, join long queue, stand around waiting for sits and squeeze with the crowd. I am in and out within minutes.
Christopher Columbus Waterfront Park is just across the road from Quincy Market. From here one can proceed to the harborwalk and the aquarium with really nice tranquil view of the sea.
Finally, I just followed the Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy Greenway towards Boston South MBTA and take the train home.
