  • This was one stop on the Freedom trail that we were looking forward to, and quickly realized that it was only a lone marker. Still worth stopping by to pay respect to the events that occurred there.  more »
  • It's a marker on the ground to show the site of the massacre, when I visited there wasn't a sign in place to tell you anything about the site or what happened at the massacre.  more »

  • 5 stars for being historic but really, a sad reminder about how some things never change, especially in light of genocides currently occurring in certain parts of the world. How many more of these sites are we going to erect to keep us from killing each other?
  • Easy to miss -- most people just walk right over it. It is good to know the history before hand to understand the event.
  • When I first got here, I totally missed the small plaque and signs. Look carefully!
  • Well this one went far up and beyond the city limits
  • Yup, there it is. I suppose a bronze statue of dead corpses would be tasteless but i really was hoping for a little more

Where to stay in Boston

To stay close to where most of Boston's tourist action is, book a room at one of the many hotels located downtown, near the center of the city and state governments, businesses, and shopping. For a more affordable option, consider a budget-friendly boutique hotel or small bed and breakfast in one of the city's diverse residential neighborhoods. If you plan to stay longer and need a real home away from home, explore Boston's short-term rental options, which include private villas, waterfront lofts, and luxury apartments scattered across the city's historical districts.
