While here, check out Old North Church and Paul Revere's house. Grab some local Italian food and maybe a cannoli at Mike's Pastry. Makes for a great afternoon!

A great place to wander. You can visit the old churches, cemeteries and Paul Revere's House, or not! Check out some of the local shops. Eat a pastry or a pizza. You can just take in the character of the North End. Get off the...More

Wonderful, quaint & not to be missed! Plenty of cafe's for Italian desserts & expresso. The restaurants are all better than the next one! Get a map and know where you're going. Explore the off streets to find hidden shrines and places to eat.

Stroll the streets and see the Old North Church and Paul Revere's house. Stay for dinner at the many great restaurants and save room for a pastry from Mikes or Modern.

You can't leave Boston without a trip to the north end for a cream filled lobster tail from Mikes bakery!!

One Italian restaurant after another. I don't know how you choose. There was one restaurant that stood out from the rest because of where one of the tables was at. See the picture. Can't get much more romantic then that.

The Freedom Trail takes you to this area, Old North Church and Bunker Hill Memorial, all part of the overall experience.

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

Hi Mebber, Most of the places/restaurants, I believe can offer a gluten free meal for your daughter. While in Boston, check Faneuil Hall that is really close to Hanover Street in North End.
