One of the many benefits of walking is that you see and experience things you’d miss using other modes of travel. You’ll see even more using one of WalkBoston’s maps, which feature places that are wonderful to walk, easy to navigate, and convenient to get around. Created by those who know the area best – either local people or experts in the walk’s particular theme. Each self-guided walk has a detailed route as well as distances and descriptions of sights and scenes.
Get your maps in the format you want: Interactive Google Maps, printable PDF versions, or request a printed version on our distinctive paper colors from our office.
