Weave your way through the city center, the birthplace of the American Revolution, and soak up some of the country’s earliest history on Freedom Trail. The 4 km (2.5 mi) brick-lined trail passes 16 historical city monuments, including museums, churches, and political sites. Begin your walk in the Boston Common, the location of the British forces' encampment during the occupation of 1775-76. Then head to the impressive Massachusetts State House, which was built shortly after the revolution and now houses state government offices. Don’t miss a chance to visit the site of the infamous Boston Massacre, or to tour the oldest house in the city, the home of Paul Revere. While most visitors choose to walk the trail freely, guided tours and audio headsets are available at the tourist center.
