With Boston’s rich heritage and being arguably the birthplace of our revolt and eventual revolutionary split from the British, it’s hard not to wave a flag and explore the city’s history when you’re there. So the day after the Craft Brewers Conference, I went on an all-day walking tour of the city, most of it spent along the Freedom Trail, a 2.5 mile self-guided tour of 17 historic sites from Boston’s history, and particularly its role in and prior to the Revolutionary War. There were also several old bars along the trail that I was keen to see, especially since last August I’d done some research into America’s Oldest Bars. So join me on a four-part photo journey of my day Drinking In The Freedom Trail. When you get to the end of each section, just follow the link to the next part.
Part 2 includes a visit to the Bell In Hand, which opened in 1795.
And in Part 3, the Green Dragon Tavern is across the street.
