  • Our sixth stop during our Freedom Trail walking tour. Another good but short stop, mainly for pictures and history. The grounds were open but the building itself was closed when we visited during a public holiday. Why this place is significant -- 1) It used to house the Boston Latin School, the oldest public school in the US. 2) The school has some really famous alumni, including Benjamin Franklin and John Hancock.
  • On the freedom trail. A gorgeous old building which is frankly much nicer than the modern city hall.
  • Wow I loved Boston and all its historical landmarks. Just makes it all come alive! One of the best places I ever been to and it looks so amazing it's a shame to see that their new city hall looks really bad!
  • 😜 take care, take care have a nice day for the kids for their concentration
  • Gorgeous building, great to walk by and see the old architecture

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.
