On Monday Massachusetts celebrated Patriots' Day, the one of a kind holiday marking the start of the American Revolution in Lexington. This weekend take the family (or some girl friends) and be a backyard tourist. Walk the whole 2.5 trail and explore each of the 16 historical sites. Done a recent Freedom Trail exploration? Check out the "Steps off the Trail" feature of The Freedom Trail Foundation's website for a list of historic locales that are (slightly) off the beaten path. Find information on self guided tours or paid tours at www.thefreedomtrail.org
And don't forget the walking shoes! We love these brand new Patagonia Everlongs - available in store and online - $110.
