If pressed for time, the Freedom Trail is the fastest (yet no less fascinating) way to immerse yourself in Boston’s living history. This 2.5mile downtown route (following the red-painted bricks) leads you to over a dozen landmarks, from museums, meetinghouses, churches, and cemeteries to Paul Revere’s House, the Old North Church, and the USS Constitution in Boston Harbor. Understand the press’s role leading up to and during the Revolutionary War by visiting The Printing Office of Edes & Gill, which offers a behind-the-scenes glimpse at a colonial era print house in action. The solemn stone obelisk at Bunker Hill memorializes the June 17, 1775 clash pitting overmatched American colonists against a powerful Red Coat army. Though outgunned, the militia held their own against the Brits and turned the tide of the Revolutionary War. And, few places offer a taste of history like the Union Oyster House. Since serving its first guest in 1826, America’s oldest restaurant is still shucking and serving oysters across the very same bar Daniel Webster was said to haunt.
