I’ve always thought that cities are best explored on foot. And that to really get to the heart of a place, you need to sample the local fare. A walking tour that combines Boston’s Freedom Trail with food tasting is a great way to learn more about the city’s famous landmarks and culinary history.
Yummy Walks offer a ‘Foods of the Freedom Trail’ tour that starts at Boston Common and concludes at Quincy Market, taking in 12 of the 16 historically significant sites. I’m just going to give you a taster (!), but if you’re interested in reading more about each of the sites of the Freedom Trail, you can do so over here.
You can also click on the links in the captions below the pictures for more information on the historical sites or for details of the restaurants and shops for food tastings.
