Instead of the yellow rock road just follow the red bricks around town to many of the historic sites
Very well done and so easy to follow

After 46 years I walked the Trail with guests from beginning to end. The experience never gets old and I learn something each time I walk it. The entire trip is about 2 1/2 miles but it takes you to some of Boston's most beautiful neighborhoods. A great jaunt with a purpose. You'll pass dozens of fine restaurants and cafes that will provide a respite during your day. If you don't feel like doing it all in one day, break it up and it's just as enjoyable.

One of the highlights of our trip to Boston. Be sure to have ID with you or you won't be able to get on the USS Constitution. I left purse in hotel so I didn't have to trek it along and couldn't get through TSA line.

While I am glad history is being preserved in Boston, I have to say they do it much more to my liking in Philadelphia. In Boston, historical venues are surrounded and dwarfed by large city buildings and the noise of a busy city -- it takes a LOT of imagination to picture it as it might have been in the 1770s. In Philadelphia, the entire area has been set aside and preserved, leaving it with a lot of original green space and keeping new city buildings separate from it. But, I digress. Kudos to Boston for keeping some history intact. We took the Revolutionary Story Tour with Mike, and it helped bring it to life.
