Walking along the Freedom Trail (Updated)

This post has been sitting in my drafts for about a year now. I can't believe I forgot to post it! Nonetheless, walking the Freedom Trail in the wintertime doesn't get old to me.

It's not too cold to walk the Freedom Trail. Only in the wintertime can we experience the true colors of Boston, its smell, its touch. It's not just about the historical sights, it's about seeing the city as a whole from a different perspective: how its rich history plays a role in our every day life, combining the past and present. Its natural beauty harmonizes with the modern architecture. Don't be afraid of the weather; the crisp, cold breezes are very inviting. All you have to do is follow the red brick line (which may sometimes turn into a painted line along the pavement) so you will never be lost. Why wait for spring when you can do it now?
