Boston in a Day: The Freedom Trail

Guest post by TS

Hi everyone! Charlo and I recently went to Boston where she was busy saving the fashion world, one stylish piece of jewelry at a time ;).  I on the other hand, took this opportunity to take what I like to call a photo safari in Boston; an attempt to capture the people, architecture and landscapes of a place...the only question was, where to start?  I discovered The Freedom Trail, a 2.5 mile (~4km), brick-lined walk that takes you through some of the most important points of the American Revolution.

It began in Boston Common, the oldest park in the US.  It not only brought out some of the bright and colorful characters of Boston, but was also a fantastic place for family's, picnics and a bit of fun!

Whilst you can probably walk the entire trail in a couple of hours, to really enjoy it, you have to take some time to soak it all in.  I highly recommend downloading a guide to tell you about the places as you reach them (or you can join a tour group on the day).

You will meet some of the most important characters in America's history from Paul Revere (whose famous 'midnight ride' to Lexington warned Samuel Adams and John Hancock that the British were coming to arrest them), to Colonel William Prescott (known for giving the following famous warning due to low rounds of ammunition).

Whilst I had a great time learning about America's history, sometimes it's better just to sit back, hang out at a local pub or enjoy the weather and have fun at the park :)

Thanks for reading and have a fantastic weekend everyone! Charlo will be back next week to update you on all the latest fashion inspirations!
