Want to discover Massachusetts with your own Boston tour?

As a city that played a significant role throughout the American Revolution, Boston is chock-full of historic sites and important monuments that commemorate its role in history.

The best way to discover these gems is to do a self-guided walking Boston tour, such as the Norman B. Leventhal Walk to the Sea. It narrates the story of Boston from its conception in 1625 up until what it has become today: a thriving metropolis and harbor city on the coast of the Massachusetts Bay.

Starting at the Beacon Hill and passing by famous landmarks, including the King’s Chapel, Government Centre, Old State House, Financial District, Custom House, Rose Kennedy Greenway, and finally ending at the Long Wharf, this walk is perfect for the history buffs in your circle or even for those who just enjoy walking through a city.

Beautiful buildings, intertwined with over four centuries of history, decorate this one-mile trek from the summit of the hill to the sea, bringing life to the story of Boston.

It sure makes for a great and educational activity when you are in the city! Maps and more resources to make your tour informative can be found on the website:
