Walking the Freedom Trail is one of the most popular activities for visitors to our city and our hotel is just a short stroll from the 2.5 mile trail. Marked by a red brick line, the Freedom Trail leads to 16 of the most important historical Boston attractions, including Paul Revere’s House, the Old North Church and the U.S.S. Constitution.
On the evening of April 18th, 1775, the Old North Church became a symbol of America’s fight for Independence as two lanterns were lit from the church steeple to signal that the British were coming to Lexington — and to Concord by sea. The Old North Church became crucial in the American Revolution. It’s located in the North End of Boston, and is Boston's oldest surviving church and most visited historical site.
The 221-foot Bunker Hill Monument marks the site of the first major battle of the Revolutionary War. On this spot, ill-equipped colonists stood their ground against a powerful opposing force of British soldiers on June 17, 1775. During the battle, Colonel William Prescott issued the famous order, “Don’t fire until you see the whites of their eyes” to ensure his colonist fighters made every shot count against overwhelming odds. There are no elevators in the monument, however the 294-step climb to the view from the top is well worth it.
One of America’s most beloved Presidents’ historic legacy is meticulously on display at the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum. Visitors discover a variety of permanent and ever-changing exhibits that depict the life, public service, and continuing impact of our nation’s 35th President.
