The Freedom Trail Society is the place to go to get all the historical information you will need about the Boston area. They have some artifacts, maps and books available for purchase. Perhaps the best thing that this society offers is a walking tour for free everyday during good weather. This tour leads the first 30 people that show up through 1.5 miles of the Freedom Trail and highlights popular historic sights. The Society is also an excellent place to go for coupons and information about other area attractions. The staff is friendly and knowledgable.
