Snagged a great free parking spot for two hours which gave us enough time to walk around the neighbor, see some history and grab a great lunch!

If you like history and food this is one of the best places to stop in the country. The North End is full of fabulous Italian restaurants that serve great meals (quantity and quality) and at very reasonable prices, ask any local. Also one must...More

Lots of restaurants, shops, pastries and history. Good place to eat and fun to just walk around day or night.

Always a great walking visit for meals and desserts! If you don't like Italian, you'll be a bit limited though...

Loved the area and especially the Church. Walked up the hill from the church to Copps Hill Burial Grounds. Although it was locked and you could not walk through you could see through the fence. Great area.

Three freedom trail tour begins you to this area, but when we visit we always pick a restaurant in the north end. Great Italian food, local venue and neighborhood atmosphere. It's a plus for the walking tour to coordinate for a lunch break, or great...More

Old buildings, people sitting in lawn chairs enjoying their day with neighbors, little courtyards and the smell of great Italian. How can you beat this? The little shops have their front windows wide open so that you have an impossible tast of choosing which establishment...More

There is just so many restaurants and landmarks to visit. We have eaten in several restaurants over the years and we have never been disappointed. A very unique neighborhood that has some kind of block party towards labor day. Very safe. Visit Mike's pastry; most...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

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
