Freedom Trail

An integral artery of downtown Boston, Freedom Trail is a winding path coursing through some of the most significant landmarks of the country. Dotted along the trail's course is a troupe of sites which have been the brewing grounds for iconic events like the Boston Tea Party and Paul Revere's Midnight Ride. Upheld by the Boston National Historic Park and the Freedom Trail Commission, it is dotted by a tracery of churches, graveyards and buildings commanding monumental significance. Some of the important sites studded on the trail are the Old State House, Faneuil Hall, Old North Church, Old South Meeting House, USS Constitution, Copp's Hill Burial Ground and Paul Revere's House. The trail often commences from Boston Common, meandering up to the Bunker Hill Monument. Voyaging proudly through the city's expanse, the Freedom Trail tells stirring tales of the country's glorious past.

The Massachusetts Audubon society transformed the former Boston State Hospital into a urban sanctuary with miles of wheelchair-accessible trails ideal for hiking and bird watching. The George Robert White Environmental Conservation Center on the sanctuary grounds offers weekly environmental education programs for local school children. The center is considered one of the greenest buildings in Boston and strives to teach environmental sustainability to all visitors. Rather than charge for admission the sanctuary kindly asks for a donation instead.
