Boston is called the cradle of liberty​ which is no mere coincidence. The remains of the great fight for freedom can still be seen on Boston's heritage trails. Today the city counts 16 historically significant sites which can be seen along the famous Freedom Trail, Black Heritage Trail, Irish Trail, and Women's Heritage Trail. Free guided tours run between April and October, though if you wish you ma​y also buy a map and discover the city's history at your own pace, as most of these sites are also accessible during the off-season.
