Boston's newest walking trail, the Norman B. Leventhal Walk to the Sea, is a one-mile route from Beacon Hill to Boston Harbor lined with 10 panels displaying old maps and photos of the city from its days as a colonial port until today. You can download a map of the trail—which threads down Beacon, Tremont, Court, and State Streets before ending at the Long Wharf—from its website. You can even read the contents of each panel via the website if you can't pound the pavement in person.
