This is one of our family's favorite vacation spots throughout the country. From the history, the fabulous architect, neighborhood feel, stores, restaurants and the people. We will be back in a few weeks for graduation, we will return.

We stayed in North End, and never wanted to leave! The food is abundant and delicious! So many choices, all of ours were good! The streets and sidewalks are very narrow, so maybe not a good place for people with strollers or wheelchairs. We felt...More

If you are looking for some of the best Italian food this side of the Atlantic, Hanover St in Boston’s North End is the place. They say that every restaurant is great here because if they are not, they don’t last a week. We have...More

Don't think that everything to see is around The Common, the north end has lots too plus some great ice cream and lively restaurants. Everything is on a more human scale too.

Great food no matter where you eat. Great for a romantic night out or with friends. Save room for dessert and a cappucino at Mike's or Modern Pastry. Credit cards not accepted at all establishments.

The history (Freedom Trail is part of it), the architecture, and OMG the food: pizza, seafood, craft beers. 3 visits and still more restaurants to try.

Between the coffee shops, bakeries, restaurants you will have an amazing time here, and this is without all the historical aspects.

The North End is everything you want in a classic historical neighborhood. A smattering of historical sites complimented by a wonderful small brick theme. Walking the weekend can include a stop at the brand new Dog Park as well as take in a few innings...More

If you go to Boston, make sure to visit the Old North Church. The neighborhood is amazing and even those who don’t care much for history will be impressed.

North End
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

I love the Harborside Inn, as it's a quick walk over there and a great location.
