See the Freedom Trail on a Boston School Trip

When planning a trip for your class, Boston is a natural choice. The entire city is steeped in history and much of the formation of America as a nation took place there. Make sure to see the Freedom Trail on a Boston school trip. You will see some of the most important historical sites of american history.

The walk will take you and your students a couple of hours, but you can choose to spend more time to explore each stop. The trail begins at Boston Common, the oldest city park in America, though you can actually begin at any one of the stops.


Notable stops include:

The Old State House

The New State House

Kings Chapel

the site of the Boston Massacre,

Faneuil Hall

Quincy Market

the Old North Church

Paul Revere's house

Faneuil Hall,

Bunker Hill, and

the USS Constitution

also known as "Old Ironsides." 

There is something of interest for every student. Whether they're more fascinated with the artwork of old grave markers or the artillery of a warship.

We like to break the walk into two parts and usually we plan for a lunch at Quincy Market just after the Faneuil Hall visit of the grand hall.

Most stops on the trail are free. Just a few charge a fee and may need a reservation for the group to enter.  If you choose so you can also sign up for a guided tour down the Freedom Trail with costumed guides who portray historical characters of the area.

The Freedom Trail on a Boston School trip is a must. It is the ideal as it covers many of the key elements of the revolutionary period.  While you're in Boston you can also see historic homes like the Nathan Appleton residence, the Frederick Ayer mansion, and the William Lloyd Garrison house.
