What we'll do

The Path to Independence: Tour of the Freedom Trail has evolved since its inception in 2004, but its core principles remain the same. It uses the Freedom Trail as a stage from which to tell the stories of Colonial Boston and the American Revolution. More than a tour that simply points out sites, the Path to Independence: Tour of the Freedom Trail is an interpretive experience that takes about two hours to complete. Beginning at Boston Common, the oldest public park in North America, your tour will move on, past the Park Street Church, into the Granary Burial Ground, where James Otis, John Hancock, Peter Faneuil, Paul Revere, Samuel Adams, and others are buried. From there it’s on to talk about King’s Chapel, the colony’s first Anglican Church, now a Unitarian Church, and down School Street to talk briefly about the first public school in British North America: The Boston Latin School. On from there to talk about Old South Meeting House and the Boston Tea Party, Faneuil Hall, the Green Dragon Tavern, and into the North End. There you’ll learn about Paul Revere and his role in the Revolution and when you reach his statue, you’ll learn all about his famous Midnight Ride. Happening: Every Day at 10:30 and 11:30 AM Saturdays at 10:30, 11:30, and 2PM The experience takes about 2 hours. Leave us a private message here for school group rates and special group rates. We look forward to seeing on the path.
