Just up the street from the Old North Church was the Copp's Burying Ground. Both were interesting in how they fit so nice and tight into a busy, crowed city.

Stopping at what may be the high point of Copp’s Hill you can see the ships and views of downtown. Using your imagination you can visualize how it must have been when the pox struck as well as when those who had lived their lives...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
