Want Italian? Go to the North End. Walk down Hanover Street and just take a count of the Italian restaurants! Every one of them will reward your taste buds with authentic Italian cuisine that is the best in the country! Some are tour bus destinations...More

A lot of good things to see in this historical area. The graveyards are interesting: the churches are architecturally amazing; the restaurants have amazing food; and the subway system is bar none in getting to most places in the city. Who needs a car unless...More

So nice to walk through Boston through all the history. Every time we come to Boston we walk part or all of the Freedom trail. Love seeing the old buildings/homes. Great free thing to do.

Boston is a unique place but with out the North End, it would lose some of its character. Around every corner you can find a new experience: food, beverages, and friendly people. Plan a visit and see why North End is the place to be.

Boston is the ultimate walkable city. If you are anywhere near the Government Center, or the Commons or the Public Garden, you can walk right over to the North End. Yes, it is not the Italian North End I grew up with, meaning it is...More

Walking through the North End is not for the claustrophobic as it is a compact area. The streets are narrow with lots of alleyways and the building are wedged in everywhere. There are lots of restaurants on the main roads and as it is Little...More

I was with friends in Boston for a few days. We made it into the North End and saw the points of interest on the Freedom Trail (Paul Revere's house and Old North Church) and would have loved to stay to check out the restaurants...More

So much to see, do and eat in the North End. Authentic Italian everywhere with rich Boston history intertwined. Can't wait to go back.

We loved the old architecture. For us, we could walk this area all week. Everyone was very nice. Very happy that we went

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

Sorry to be so late with this response, been traveling :-) If you're looking for a true "lobster bake" you won't find that at a restaurant. Those types of things need to be catered. There are lines most everywhere unless... More

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
