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

Good grief. 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.

I you are a fan of history, visit here. As a cemetery, it is neat. As a historic site, it is awesome to think about the battles that took place on and from this ground. It is one of the highest points in Boston which...More

Relative to other Burying Grounds visited, Copy’s Hill was not as crowded and you were able to actually spend time looking at grave stones and other materials. The view from Copp’s Hill Terrace is also very nice. In particular, the view of Bunker Hill and...More

Part of our morning tour before we were let loose on the Town was this Historical cemetery, several notable burials which we were pointed to a few of them, of the beaten track but worth a detour to visit.

Used as a vantage point by the British in 1775's Battle of Bunker Hill, it has considerable history. Located on the North End, not far from where we stayed, it was very walkable and we spent time searching for names and dates, using the map...More

Seeing some of these old tombstones really makes you feel like you're traveling through time! This stop on the Freedom Trail is definitely worthwhile!

A fairly small area, with some display of the markings in the tombstones two centuries ago. Worth a quick look since it is pretty close to some sights on the Freedom Trail

This isn't too far from the Old North Church - so in a historically interesting area. As ever this too is easily found by following the Freedom Trail. It's worth a visit, though it's not a massive place, as it allows you to read the...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
