DescriptionWander along Boston's Freedom Trail with this audio guide. Walk from Copp’s Hill Burying Ground to the George Washington Statue in the Boston Public Garden and unlock the story behind the nation’s beginnings as you listen to the voice of Gregg Squeglia, a local history fanatic. Start your walk in one of Boston’s oldest neighborhoods, the North End, and learn about the Colonial and Revolutionary history of the area. Travel as far back as 1692 with a visit to the grave of Cotton Mather, the minister at the heart of the Salem Witch Trials. Next, journey to the Old North Church and the pre-Revolution years, when Paul Revere organized the midnight riders so they could alert the Minutemen that the British were coming. Waft past the aromas of Little Italy’s restaurants and bakeries to get to the Paul Revere House, before enjoying a stroll along the Rose Kennedy Greenway while you learn about Boston’s ”Big Dig.” Afterward, take a moment to shop around Quincy Market or catch some of the area’s regular street performers as you learn about Faneuil Hall and one of America’s fiercest proponents of liberty, Samuel Adams. Stop by the Old State House to hear how president John Adams magnanimously defended perpetrators of the Boston Massacre. Learn about the two choices that Irish families faced in the 1800s as you pass by the Boston Irish Famine Memorial en route to visit Adams’ grave in the Granary Burying Ground. Feel free to start, pause, or restart at any time and complete your visit at your own pace. If your travel plans change, you can use the audio guide on any date of your choice or use the virtual in-app option for an at-home experience.
