When reading up on things to do in Boston, you might have wondered, “where is the Freedom Trail?” The fact of the matter is that The Freedom Trail is not a single location. The trail winds its way through the heart of Boston, Massachusetts, and over the bridge into Charlestown. The 2.5-mile trail connects 16 different historical sites in the city, starting at the beautiful Boston Common and ending in Charlestown at the Bunker Hill Monument.
The trail is marked with an iconic vertical red brick or red painted line, which links all stops to each other. The Freedom Trail can be followed using a web or paper map or simply sticking to the red line.
