1 Faneuil Hall Sq # 1, Boston, MA
The Freedom Trail is a 2.5 mile historic trail that includes 16 seventeenth and eighteenth century buildings and locations where the American Revolution began. Stories of desperate men and women who risked everything for what they believed in are just as compelling as they were 250 years ago! The Freedom Trail is, appropriately, FREE. You can follow the “Red brick road” and walk the trail yourself at your own pace -- you can even download the free guided tour app to your smart phone! We suggest joining the 10:00 a.m. and 12:00 p.m. free guided tours offered by the Parks Service; or for $13 you can join a tour led by a guide in period dress. The choice is yours! Please note that three historic sites on the trail have admission fees (totaling $17 if purchased separately). For more information, visit
At 10:00 am, enjoy the hour-long free Guided Freedom Trail ranger walk entitled: Trails to Freedom: “Meetings, Mobs and Martyrs." Meet at Faneuil Hall Ranger Station. The route then continues to the Paul Revere House, ending at the Old North Church.
At noon, enjoy the hour-long free Guided Freedom Trail ranger walk entitled: Trails to Freedom: “Taking the High Ground to Bunker Hill.” The route takes you from the Charlestown Navy Yard Visitor Center to the Bunker Hill Monument. The walk is 45 minutes, but allow an additional 15 minutes for climbing the monument.
After lunch, you may continue your exploration of the Freedom Trail on your own (free iPhone app available) or on the free ranger-guided walks available until 3 p.m. from Faneuil Hall.
Please try to wear something that identifies you as a Mosaic member (t shirt? hat? Some type of T-shirt w/Hebrew on it???? ideas??) to facilitate finding each other.
PLEASE NOTE: The event host is at the Labor Day event and pre-trip and will have only sporadic access to Meetup. If you have questions, please be patient in awaiting a response.
Look forward to seeing you! :)
