This is part of the Freedom Trail in Boston. For some, it'll just be another graveyard, and I preferred the Granary Hill Burying Ground earlier on the route, but I'll take it. Not that this will matter that much, but it will for some: to...More

The markers were so old, and interesting to read, even if they weren't family. Sad so many died so young. But the outer areas were unkept, a disgrace, but it is what it is now. This should be a site up for a volunteer clean...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
