On the freedom trail on the top of the hill. Worth walking up the steps to take a look around. The tombstones are short and thin, but can easily be read. Some plaques are available in the cemetery that provide historical data. Quick and easy...More

It is interesting story to understand how they " rebuild" this site; the stone yards are randomly put in. You can see this place from the side walk and I'm not sure is the most interesting place to visit in downtown Boston.

As a heads up, I attempted to visit in August 2017. Website says the site is open 9am-4pm. When we arrived at 9:30am, Old North Church told us that National Parks service is frequently late in opening cemetery. When we called at 10am, we were...More

Visited Copp's Hill Burying Ground both in the day and at night with my wife while touring Boston. In the day it is a well maintained cemetery with lots of interesting headstones. At night there is an eerie feel to the cemetery. The cemetery is...More

Yes, this was a stop on the Freedom Trail. Still, I didn't think was nearly as good as the other stops, or even some of the other burial grounds. It is smaller and had less notable people enshrined than in some of the other plots...More

This is the last stop on the Freedom Trail before crossing the bridge into Charlestown, so it was nice to stop here for a few minutes to get our bearings and rest a little on a warm day. The cemetery here is one of Boston's...More

There are 17 stops on the Freedom Trail. This is stop #15. It's a nice place to visit. There are not famous names you will recognize, but there are key historical figures that will make it worth a walk through. I was fascinated by the...More

Less famous than Granary and Kings, and out of the way along the Freedom Trail, this was worth the walk. Again, kudos to Boston for the excellent descriptive signs. Among the many famous families buried here are the Mather's of Cotton Mather fame. Apparently, more...More

This is just up the street from the Old North Church on the Freedom Trail. There are several notable people buried here, the most famous probably being Cotton Mather, the Puritan minister who was involved in the Salem Witch Trials. It's well maintained and a...More

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
