Boston Day 3 – The Freedom Trail
Site of the famed Boston Massacre and the place where the fight for liberty began.
Where the colonist met and planned the Boston Tea Party
The first burial was in 1630, Mary Chilton, the 1st pilgram to touch Plymouth Rock is buried here as is William Dawes who also rode on the famous midnight ride. I can imagine it is spooky at night. But I was touched by the respect shown to these long gone people.
There are many people in the city who love their history and do a wonderful job bringing it to life for visitors!
The Old North Church also called Christ Church is the oldest church building in Boston built in 1723.
We also stopped at a few other places along the way, Paul Revere’s house, Faneuil Hall, the Parker House Hotel (not on the Freedom trail but for a foodie it was interesting to see where they invented Boston Cream pie and the Parker House Rolls. We also had a great lunch at Durgin Park http://www.arkrestaurants.com/durgin_park.html.
Once again the weather was perfect, we had a great day! But after two days of walking the city my feet are tired!
PS: We got free parking again! Do you think I have lucky parking Karma?
