But I didn’t complete the whole route of the Freedom Road myself. Most of the attractions I visited were scattered in time. On the one hand, I didn’t want to walk the Freedom Road by myself, and on the other hand, it was the freedom that no one wanted to follow me completely. I felt that it would take too long to go, so I can only go to these historical sites and attractions. Therefore, I have not participated in the commentary. It is a pity to say that, but I am relatively less curious about history, every time I listen to it. The historical story is soon forgotten.

A lot of time is immersed in the atmosphere of walking in the old city. It is quite interesting to see some of the buildings left over from the beginning. Walking aimlessly in the streets, in fact, you will unconsciously The only thing that passes through many historical sites is whether you know it exists.

Fortunately, the Internet is very convenient to find any information. Basically, if you have a mobile phone that can access the Internet, there is no problem that can block you. On the contrary, although I had the Internet when I was in Boston, it was still not as convenient as it is now. I still need to hold a map for assistance occasionally, but I feel that it is more atmospheric to understand a city while walking and looking at it with a paper map.

Remember when you arrive in Boston, don't miss this Freedom Trail. The history of Boston is of great significance to the United States, and most of the places can be walked on foot.
