Boston and the Freedom Trail

The 3rd annual girls getaway ended with two days in Boston. We stayed at the Hilton in the Financial District in a suite....and what a fan.tas.tic suite! This is a great hotel to explore Boston. It is about a 5 minute walk to the wharf and the aquarium; a 5 minute walk to Quincy Market; and about a 15-20 minute walk to Boston Commons. Rates are reasonable, especially on the weekends because it caters to more of the business traveler during the week.

One of the must-see tourist things in Boston is to walk the Freedom Trail. You can easily walk the trail (red line/red brick) solo with the aid of a map and a print out of the major sites, you can travel it with friends and family from the area or you can even join a historic walking tour, complete with docents dressed in period pieces.

  1. HEY! GO check out my blog. My friend Ingrid was probably walking on the Freedom Trail the same time as you!!! :)

  2. Tara-yep...we were there during the same week. My mom and sister may have even been on the same flight on July 4th of Boston. How crazy is that?!?!
