Boston is a walking city, and a city steeped in almost four hundred years of history. Accordingly, there are some fantastic walking tours to choose from. While you could choose a traditional Freedom Trail tour, the secret is that the Freedom Trail is easy to self-guide! Boston Strolls travels off the beaten path, literally, to give you a glimpse into Boston’s past that goes beneath the surface and beyond the ordinary.

Beacon Hill Uncensored:

We will stroll through Boston Common and the scenic streets of Beacon Hill as we discuss the seedy past of this now upscale neighborhood and the more colorful characters whose mark on history is often overlooked – a sleepwalking murderer and Boston’s earliest known nudist, just to name a few!

Back Bay: Swamp to Skyscrapers:

On this tour we will trace the social and civil engineering of the Back Bay project by strolling from Boston’s colonial coastline at the foot of Boston Common to the heart of the new neighborhood in Copley Square. Along the way, we’ll discuss the technologies that enabled the city to tackle this ambitious project, the personalities and institutions behind it, and the innovative building techniques that transformed the Back Bay from swamp to skyscrapers.
Put Boston Strolls into our Boston trip site and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.
