The Freedom Trail® Foundation invites revelers to celebrate this holiday season on the annual Historic Holiday Strolls. The festive atmosphere of the city, set against the unique backdrop of Boston’s historic sites and centuries of history, makes these merry 90-minute tours a perfect way to celebrate the holidays. Walk the Freedom Trail and discover how Boston’s holiday traditions evolved on the Strolls, offered Fridays and Saturdays at 3:30 p.m. from November 18 through December 31, and Thursday, December 22. Please note, there will be no Strolls on Saturday, December 24.
Led by 19th-century Dickensian costumed guides departing from the Visitor Information Center on Boston Common, the Strolls are complete with a tour of holiday lights and Christmas trees along the Freedom Trail while learning about 19th-century holiday traditions. Following the Stroll, guests receive discounts off museum store purchases at Freedom Trail sites, including the Old South Meeting House, Old State House, Paul Revere House, and Old North Church’s Heritage and Gift Shops (valid with any Historic Holiday Stroll receipt from November through December).
Tickets are $20 for adults and $10 for children for public tours. The Strolls may also be scheduled as private group tours pending availability. To book a private group tour, please call (617) 357-8300. Tickets can be purchased online or from the Visitor Information Center located on Boston Common. To purchase tickets, please click here.
