Let's just say that you are flying in and out of Boston to go elsewhere in the New England area, but that you happen to have about 4 hours of daylight to see a bit of Boston. "Not enough time to see it properly" you say? Not true! At least not entirely.
Fortunate for the on-foot traveler, Boston is a very walkable city and complete with a very walkable and easy-to-follow 'trail' that leads from one historic site to the next. I was able to see much of Boston and take a walk through American history by following The Freedom Trail.

|The "Old Corner Bookstore" that is part of the Freedom Trail is now a Chipotle, however, very near you'll find Commonwealth Books which is a bookworm haven. Don't miss it.|
And, since I was fortunate enough to be in Boston on 4th of July Weekend, I happened upon a patriotic-themed sunset concert at Old Ironsides, featuring the Navy Band Northeast, complete with demonstrations of revolutionary-era canon and musket exercises...which wrapped up the bite-of-Boston experience quite nicely.
