You’d certainly be hard-pressed to find a more iconic urban hike than Boston’s Freedom Trail. If you have the time to explore all the historic sites along this route, you can easily spend an entire day, but perhaps a weekend is more realistic if you want the full experience of stopping for lunch at one of the many authentic Italian restaurants in the North End and exploring the Charles River waterfront surrounding the USS Constitution, aka Old Ironsides. Not only is Boston a world-class city literally studded with historical landmarks like those on the Freedom Trail as well as Bunker Hill and Faneuil Hall, but the metropolitan area as well as all of eastern Massachusetts is peppered with obvious monuments to the past, and less apparent treasures lie just around the corner where you least expect them.
