No matter if you're here with a purpose, or just strolling through its streets with lovely red brick buildings, you could walk here for an entire day. It's busy, but still it boasts a calm atmosphere. So to speak, pretty much every building here has...More

The buildings in the North end date from the colonial era and founding of Boston. In later years it served as home of new immigrants to our shores upon their arrival in Boston. First there was the Irish and later followed by the Italians. This...More

As far as I'm concerned the North End is the best neighborhood in Boston. The sights, the restaurants, the stores, the history, the summer feasts, the general atmosphere, the smells, and the people are all wonderful. Even though we are not from here, we loved...More

The North Church and Paul Revere country is very worthwhile to visit. We sat in one of the BOXES in the church and saw one that was lavisly decorated. Cemetary interesting too.

There is so much history in Boston to absorb. The North End is a treasure. We wandered around just enjoying the sites.

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

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
