The Freedom Trail may be the most hackneyed of Boston tourist destinations, but it’s still worth it for a resident to take a walk on it every so often. And taking my children on the walk for the first time, I got to see it through their eyes. Plus, there are always some surprises, like a pop-up concert by the Handel and Haydn Society at King’s Chapel (which entranced my daughter).
