  • Some have called it just a circle in the ground. And from a visual standpoint, this is true. But while the blood that has been spilled is gone and the cries of the slain have been silenced, we must never forget what has happened on this spot. Innocent lives were lost to start the monumental progression towards liberty and independence.
  • Great walking distance from several historic sites. Very Clean area and a great tour is available.
  • Cool historical site! Conveniently along the Freedom Trail
  • Not much to see, just a circle on the ground. You should visit the Old State House for excellent talks.
  • Great Historic Site, among many in the City of Boston.

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.
