  • One of my favorites on the trail! It was such a feeling to stand where so much history has taken place! We even bought some tea that was pushed into the harbor all those years ago!
  • This is a must-visit if talking the Freedom Trail. It's also fairly easy to miss, if you don't look down and see the marker.

  • A great city walk. This is part of the downtown historic walk.
  • a little busy but cool
