Walk The Freedom Trail

Are you a history lover? Why not explore Downtown Boston’s past by walking the Freedom Trail? All you need is a pair of your most comfortable shoes to enjoy the Freedom Trail Downtown. You can start at the Old South Meeting House on Milk Street or by the Old Corner Bookstore on Washington Street. To make it easy for tourists to spot, the Freedom Trail is marked by a distinctive double line of red bricks in the pavement that runs through the 2.5-mile trail district. If you don’t want to go solo and need a well-narrated tour, book the tour with a costumed guide at the ArtsBoston booth in Faneuil Hall Marketplace. It’s immersive and educational. 

The Wilbur Theater

Okay, it’s time for the theater lovers! You’ll have a blast at the Wilbur Theatre if you are one. This historic theater opened in 1913, and efforts have been made to restore it to its original appearance. It is now used for various events, like comedy shows, music concerts, lectures, etc. If you’re lucky, maybe you can catch a show or two. But if not, you can take in the fantastic architecture. The Wilbur Theatre is built with a vast main floor seating area, two balconies, and two side boxes, just like in the old days. But it is now fitted with a state-of-the-art audio and lighting system. If you want that bourgeoisie feeling, you can book a private room for food and drinks or a VIP lounge for a truly exclusive experience.
