Boston Common Visitor Center, Boston; (617) 242-5642
Everybody knows the Freedom Trail that red line painted down the middle of the sidewalk downtown. But have you ever actually walked it? It’s probably the fastest history lesson
Historic Neighborhoods Tours This educational non-profit organization will show you nooks and crannies all over town, for five bucks.
Mapparium Walk through the center of a giant glass globe with the nations of the world (circa 1935) painted in bright colors. Also popular for its bizarre acoustics.
The State House See political fireworks up close, free of charge you’ve ever seen, and you’ll get exercise too. Nearly three miles of walking brings you to a dozen colonial landmarks some you’ll know, some you may not. And, unless you go into some of them, like the Paul Revere House and the Constitution Museum (which charge small fees), it won’t cost you a cent. Pick up a map at the beginning of the trail, the Boston Common Visitor Center on Tremont Street, and off you go. From May through October the National Park Service will take you on a free 90-minute guided tour, starting from the Visitor Center at the intersection of Devonshire and State Streets, near City Hall.
Ask about maps for the Black Heritage Trail, the Women’s Heritage Trail, and the Harborwalk, too.
