    Freedom Trail

    November 4, 2017 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 9 °C

    Bek and I walked the Freedom Trail from Boston Common the Bunker Hill, about 2.5 miles (4km). We journeyed through many significant sites in Boston's history including Paul Revere's house (he is very well revered in Boston) and the USS constution. My highlight was climbing the 294 steps of the Bunker Hill monument (I am so unfit) where the views across Boston were spectatular.Read more

    Boston by foot...ouch!

    August 13, 2016 in the United States ⋅ ☁️ 21 °C

    After our early start and great breakfast this morning, the day began with disappointment. We'd hoped to tour the Massachusetts State House but sadly they don't do this on weekends. So instead, we set out on the Freedom Trail - a 2.5 Mike trail taking in sites of historical significance for US history. We saw the grave of John Hancock (which looks...interesting!), the site of the Boston Massacre and some other great sites. At Faneuil Hall I indulged in a National Parks Service passport so I can collect stamps at all US national parks - absolutely in love with my little souvenier! The National Parks Service app provided into along the trail which made the trail real interesting. Most interesting was definitely Bunker Hill, the site of an important Revolutionary battle and home to a huge 221 foot monument. We climbed the 294 steps to the top, which was a killer but worth it for the view, and returned down to listen to a park ranger giving a lecture on the battle which was outstanding. After a visit to the museum we continued on to the Navy Yard to see the USA Cassis and USS Constitution. In the USS Constitution museum we were able to inscribe our names on the copper that will be used on the hull of the ship 😁 To reward ourselves at the end of the trail, we visited the Downeast Cider brewery to partake in some samples and had a jolly nice time - proper cider and Ben enjoyed the 'hard lemonade' 😊 Some street theatre and tango in the park rounded off a day of about 10 hours of walking...rather achey this evening!Read more
