Boston is known for its popular tourist spots that include the Freedom tail, Cambridge and Faneuil Hall Marketplace, among others

Freedom Trail

The Freedom trail can be found by following the redbrick trail, a 2.5 mile trail from the Boston Common to Bunker Hill. A tourist should allot at least one to three hours to go through the historical sites.

Freedom trail also houses the oldest bar of America, the Bell, which is found in Hand Tavern. Tourists can also visit the Old North Church as well as Paul Revere’s house that are in the North End.

Tourists can also visit the Bunker Hill monument.

Faneuil Hall Marketplace

Faneuil Hall Marketplace is located in the middle of downtown Boston, just along the Freedom trail.

The Faneuil Hall was built back in 1742, and now the area has become a marketplace which houses the Quincy market and south and north market buildings.

Tourists can find delicious food just beneath the canopies at the Quincy market. Visitors may also want to shop and buy unique items from the pushcart vendors or watch a street performance.

Tourists can visit the Faneuil Hall Marketplace from 10 in the morning until nine in the evening from Mondays to Saturday and from 12 noon until six in the evening on Sundays.


Cambridge is another favorite tourist destination. Visitors to Cambridge will have to take a trip across the Charles River in order to get to Cambridge.

Cambridge is home to two of the top performing universities in the world– Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and Harvard. Both schools have imposing architecture and offer a wide range of restaurants and shopping areas.

Tourists can go visit the seven colonial mansions along Tory Row. These colonial mansions date back to the time of King George. The most famous of the seven mansions is the Longfellow house since this was the home of Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, a 19th-century poet. It was also the old headquarters of General George Washington at the time of Siege of Boston.
