I've done the Freedom Trail multiple times. There is always a plethora of sites and people to see. The sense of history is vivid and enjoyable.

very nice
Boston has done a great job with the trail.
love the north end...

Loved the history, not the crowds.

I walk this regularly (at least twice a week). here are some little trails off the beaten path hat nobody uses but the regulars. It can get pretty crowded but the ocean view is amazing, plus heading towards the city as the sun is going down is beautiful.

Loved it. You have to consider it "Urban Hiking". Bring cash too. Half the spots you have to pay to get into, and the rest are requested donation. Great for the history buff. Did 10 miles from Copley Square to Breeds hill and back again.

Lots of wonderful Italian restaurants in the North End!

Great way to see Boston and learn all the history to go with it.

great for walks, biking, dog walking, jogging

Amazing trail. Great historical trip and a must see, especially if you go on one of the tours where the guides are dressed in ye olde fashion.

Great time in a great city

Beautiful view to the city of Boston

I've done this several times with friends visiting from out of town. It's a great way to see a lot of historic spots in Boston. Highly recommend for tourists.
