Celebrate the Power of Liberty
There are plenty of places to stay in plenty of cities where you can be close enough to one or maybe two historical attractions without having to do more than walk for a few minutes. But, the hotels near the Freedom Trail in Boston offer something far more significant. Conceived by a local journalist in 1951 to provide a connection to all the most important historical areas of the city, the Freedom Trail was created just a year later by the mayor John Hynes. It stretches for two and a half miles, a distance not so short that the experience ends too quickly but not so long that you can’t walk the entire thing at your leisure.
Along its length, 16 different sites, monuments, and memorials will take you through the history of both Boston and the nation it helped build. These include the green expanse of Boston Common. There are the historic buildings or sites: Massachusetts State House, the Park Street Church, the Benjamin Franklin Statue, the Old Corner Bookstore, the Old South Meeting House, the Old State House, the site of the Boston Massacre, Faneuil Hall, the Paul Revere House, the Old North Church, the Bunker Hill Monument, and the U.S.S. Constitution. You even have historic cemeteries that include the Granary Burying Ground, the King’s Chapel and its Burying Ground, and Copp’s Hill Burying Ground.
Scattered among these important sites are plaques detailing the important moments and people that made each location what it is today. Most of the 16 locations can visited free of charge with payment only being required at the Old State House, the Old South Meeting House, and the Paul Revere House. And while you’re making the most of the convenience you’ll get from the hotels near the Freedom Trail in Boston, make sure to stop in and have something to eat or buy some souvenirs at the various restaurants and shops along the way.
