So what is this?
If you’re from the Boston area, like me, you will probably know, and you probably spent more than a few hours in your junior high school days following this around town on field trips.
It is the Freedom Trail.
Not to get into too much detail, but basically the Freedom Trail is a red (mostly brick) 2.5 mile walking tour that winds through 16 important sites of interest in Boston, most of these sites are important to the Revolutionary War. Since Boston is a pretty little place as cities go, it’s a great way to see a lot of the town and also get a little bit of history in. It is the one thing I always bring friends along on when they are in visiting.
The Freedom Trail is even nearer and dearer to my heart lately, because I’ve been working on an eGuide for it, that I am planning to release this summer. It will have some pictures that I took on a recent trip of the trail, such as the one above, and it will have some interesting facts about the trail, Boston, and (knowing me) a few great places to grab some eats and a beer along the trail. So, keep an eye out for that, and I’ll give you more details in the coming weeks.
Have any of you been on the trail, are you looking to go, do you think its a good idea to have something like this in a city, what are you thoughts?
