Boston, as the birthplace of the American Revolution, is one of the most historic cities in the country. Nestled between the modern high rises, you can find a plethora of historic buildings, cobblestone streets, and landmarks. For those who like to explore on foot, walking the Freedom Trail is one of the best ways to see the sites.

Give yourself a day to see all the sights as you’ll want to spend some time at each.
