Freedom trail is wonderful. Definitely go see Paul Revere’s house and the North Church. If you have time, follow the trail out to Sudbury, Concord and Lexington to see where the first march took place for the battle at the Concord bridge.

We enjoyed the area around Bunker Hill- found a cute old tavern, little shops, old houses. Plus the BH site & museum was a great stop. I would also recommend going over to Cambridge- you can walk around Harvard and MIT. And grab a great Italian meal in the North End (also overlaps the Freedom Trail at points). We also enjoyed exploring the Boston Public Market.

Italian North End for sure. cemeteries are awesome. you can see Mother Goose’s grave! ( Nursery Rhyme based on this woman) We took the on/off trolley &spent as much time as we wanted at each place . they give you lots of historical Info & come by every 30 minutes! Even goes to Harvard!

We took the commuter boat over to the Consitution. Then rented bikes (similar to Divvy) and ride over to Cambridge and Harvard.

I never thought i would be the person recommending a cheesy tour, but the duck boat tour was really awesome. It hits all the high points in the city (and on the water) and if you get a good guide, it’s a riot (and informative)! Then you can get an overview of the city and go explore the places that interested you the most.

This book, step by step guide. Makes walking it without a group a breeze, sold along the trail or Amazon. Get one for each of you. It also takes you through the cemeteries. Italian side, find a Deli and get a sandwich, whale watching, Fenway (game or tour) USS constitution tour. Seriously so much to see there and all on foot.

We did a double decker bus tour of haunted Boston and our kids loved it. It was creepy but super interesting.
