Labor Day provides one last chance to do those quintessential New England summer things you've always wanted to do, like walk the Freedom Trail.

When reporter Pippin Ross was recently asked by a friend to walk the trail, she admitted she had zero interest in walking parts of Paul Revere’s ride with a colonial-costumed guide describing the American Revolution. But — out of loyalty, she went.

This segment aired on September 2, 2011.
