Experience the Freedom Trail
While the Paul Revere House is our favorite site on the Freedom Trail, when you visit Boston, don’t miss the rest of this 2.5 mile walk through history. The Freedom Trail is clearly marked by a red painted line or red bricks set into the sidewalk. It begins at Boston Common, meanders through Downtown Boston, passes through the North End, and finally crosses the Charles River to the neighborhood of Charlestown. On your journey, you’ll see historic homes, monuments, museums, churches, burial grounds, and more. Boston’s Freedom Trail … there’s nothing else quite like it in the United States!
You can experience the Freedom Trail as you like. Grab a map and follow the line on your own, or join a walking tour with the costumed guides from The Freedom Trail Foundation or a free tour offered by the National Park Service. (Note: scheduled public tours do not allow time to actually go inside any of the sites). You can visit an individual site, like the Paul Revere House, or spend a day (or two!) seeing it all. Only groups require advance reservations. See our group page for details.
We recommend the Patriot Pass for admission to two of the sites that charge admission fees (Old South Meeting House and Paul Revere House).
The Patriot Pass: two great Revolutionary sites, one low price.
Old South Meeting House – Where the Boston Tea Party Began
Paul Revere House – Home of the Patriot and Silversmith
Just $11.00 for adults, and $2.00 for children, for two of Boston’s most famous Freedom Trail sites.
If your trip to Boston is in fewer than two weeks, buy your tickets once you reach town at the Old South Meeting House. It’s still the same great deal.
The Freedom Trail ticket can’t be used by groups.
If you are making arrangements for a group, please contact each site for information on how to get an even better deal and special service by making a group reservation. This is particularly important if you are arranging a field trip for students. By contacting the sites you can find out about all of the outstanding educational programs offered and get the best available group discounts.
