This child's-eye view of the Freedom Trail's architecture and history is especially designed for young walkers 6-12 years. A free Explorer's map is included. Your child will learn about Boston's role in the American Revolution and discover the materials on which a city is built.
Walking along Boston's historic Freedom Trail and part of Boston's original coastline, children will be able to see the historical sites that played major roles in American independence such as Faneuil Hall, the Old State House, and the Old South Meeting House. Learning about the Boston Massacre on the site on which it happened brings a new dimension to learning American history.
Stops also include the site of the first public school in America and the oldest burial ground in Boston. This tour covers ten sites in downtown Boston but is shorter and faster-paced than our Heart of the Freedom Trail tour.
Our guides also love to point out the fun and interesting attractions along the route such as Shem's grasshopper, the royal lion & unicorn, Benjamin Franklin flying a kite, and the Democrat donkey.
