How is it possible that I grew up in Boston and never visited this burying ground until I walked The Freedom Trail with my kids? Truly a hidden gem! Set in a very quiet neighborhood, this is a peaceful place with views of Boston Harbor....More
Paul Revere, Sam Adams, and Cotton Mather all buried here. A lot of interesting epitaphs on some of these old gravestones. The British had used this area in preparation for the Battle of Bunker Hill and used some of the gravestones for target practice.
After a bite in the North End, we stumbled upon this gem. There is a wealth of American history here and the first Lighthouse keeper in America and his wife and daughter are also burried here. Highly recommend a stroll through and read some of...More
It's a cemetery. How can it be a 5 or a 1? It's a wide open space with a bunch of tombstones.
If you're into that sort of thing then go. We walked through and carried on for a cup of coffee.

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
and Copp’s Hill Burying Ground. Take a rest in a cafe on Hanover street and observe the quirky, European character of the North End.
