The area is full of historic reminders of our beginning as a country. Take a guided with a park rancher, no charge! And the Ranger is knowledgable and presents the facts.

As with most things in Boston, the history is fascinating. This church was as well. Very important historical significance.

The church itself was definitely interesting, including the 5-10 minute presentation. However, the highlight to our family was the chocolate shop around the corner. Don't miss it.

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
