Downtown Boston, which includes Boston’s Financial District, is the heart of the City, home to corporate headquarters, financial industry hubs, and City Hall. With countless office towers, businesses, and government centers, including City Hall and the State House, the area comes alive with thousands of workers bustling to and from work.
Downtown Boston is linked to the neighborhoods in many ways. Perhaps the most popular is the historic Freedom Trail, which winds through the city, linking today’s downtown with 16 of the city’s most historic sites. One of the oldest and most famous walking tours in the country, the Trail highlights two and a half centuries of Boston’s historical past.
