Boston - itinerary and walking Freedom Trail vs. trolley tour

Jump to last reply

We (me, husband, two college aged boys) will be stopping in Boston for two days before our annual Cape Cod vacation. I have no excuse as to why none of us have been to Boston up until now, but there's a first time for everything!

We only have two days, and the first day will be an approximate 7-8 hour road trip from Buffalo. Hoping to leave home around 5:00 a.m. We will check in to our hotel (or at least leave our luggage until check-in later on) and hit the road. Staying at the Marriott Long Wharf. Day 1 is for the boys - they want to hit the Sam Adams Brewery (I could seriously do without that, but what the hell?). Following that up will be a late lunch / early dinner at Doyles, as all the guys want to check out a neighborhood Irish pub.

I've checked out the "T" stops - seems easy enough to navigate. Boys would like to check out Newbury Street area afterward to check out a Nike store and the general neighborhood. Back to hotel to get into our room and rest. Maybe walk around a bit in the evening to Quincy Market area.

Day 2 is my pick - history day! I know there isn't enough time to see everything. I understand the Freedom Trail isn't all that long and very doable with the right shoes. And I would like to cover most if not all of it. But I'm also hankering to see Beacon Hill. If we take the hop on/off trolley tour, it does detour over that way. But I'm not sure if it covers all the historical sites on the Freedom Trail.

Can anyone offer any insight? Thanks.
