This is the church that launched Paul Revere’s famed midnight ride. There is no admission charge, although they suggest a $3.00 donation. It’s a beautiful historic church and well worth visiting. You probably don’t need more than 15-30 minutes here.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
