This is a wonderful historical church! It is free to the public but they do ask for a free will offering to help support the tour guides. Learning about the churches' significants to the American Revolution is great.

Loved exploring the fun in North End. Take time and enjoy at least 1/2 day! This is the place to stop and enjoy some people watching. Take time to sit and sip a special beverage at a street corner cafe.

The facts and history of why wealthy people such as Fitzgeralds live in this area to be common people helped us understand it better. During American Revolution is was the only cemetery to bury workers.

The North End of Boston is the Italian neighborhood, filled with Italian restaurants. The aromas waft from the windows and draw you in.

While on our Freedom Trail self guided walking tour we first spotted the steeple of the Old North Church and than the classic statue of Paul Revere on his horse. If one comes via the back streets the Revere statue would be missed. This old...More

Wandering around Boston’s North End can feel like
being transported to Europe. Stroll down Hanover and
Salem streets for the finest Italian restaurants,
bakeries, cafes, and a few boutique shops. Take part
in the big debate as to whether Modern Pastry or
Mike’s serves a better cannoli. Before your food coma
sets in, make sure to stop by historic Paul Revere’s
home, and follow the Freedom Trail to Old North Church

Sorry to be so late with this response, been traveling :-) If you're looking for a true "lobster bake" you won't find that at a restaurant. Those types of things need to be catered. There are lines most everywhere unless... More

First things first, if you are coming in from Logan Airport and know how to work subways, you do NOT have to pay a penny getting into Boston. Take the SL1 (Silver Line 1) airport shuttle from any arriving terminal to SOUTH... More
