Photography Friday!

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?

    Ohmigod, THE FREEDOM TRAIL!! The bane of my childhood traveling existence. So boring to a 9 and 11 year old (me and my sister)! Even to this day, we still gauge the boringness of something to that activity. Another graveyard?! Kill (and bury) me now!

    I am sure it’s different as an adult, but to kids visiting Boston from Los Angeles in the height of tourist season in July, we just wanted to die:-).

      Lol, I can imagine, it was crazy crowded when I was taking these pictures in late May! Cool posts on Australia and NZ, I am thinking of heading to one or the other next year.

        LOVE!!! New Zealand. So different from Los Angeles. East coasters tend to like Australia more, because it’s so different for them, but to me, it was like coming home. Big, hot, loud and crowded in Australia while New Zealand was smaller, colder, quieter and much more empty. Give me a shout if you have any questions about either!!
