    In 1958 the Freedom Trail was conceived by local journalist William Schofield. He had been promoting the idea of linking important local landmarks with a pedestrian trail since 1951. Fifty years later tourists from all over the world visit Boston and walk in the footsteps of USA history.

    The Freedom Trail is a red path through downtown Boston, Massachusetts that leads significant historic sites. It is a 2.5 mile walk from the Boston Common to the Bunker Hill Monument in Charlestown and is popular with tourists.

    Would give it 4 stars if it would drop the extremely annoying "din din din din... dddrrrrr... auidoviator" ad at the end of each commentary. 5 stars if it would bother saying something on the longer legs, for example, describing the view fro. the bridge.
