Directions

The Freedom Trail, a red brick line along the sidewalk, connects most of the sites in the park within a short walk of each other.

Where are we going today?

Boston National Historical Park tells the story of the events that led to the American Revolution and the Navy that kept the nation strong. Visit the historic sites that make up Boston National Historical Park.

There are Ranger led 60 minute walking tours leaving daily from Charlestown Navy Yard, Bunker Hill Monument, the downtown visitor center and Faneuil Hall, at the latter of which there are also indoor historical talks given every half an hour.

Pick up the Junior Ranger handbooks for kids and if they return both completed they get a badge announcing them to be a Master Junior Ranger!
