North End Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Boston is a walker’s town. It’s as clear as the brick-red path marking the Freedom Trail, the bright-blue signs of the Harborwalk, or the lush green of the Emerald Necklace series of parks. Boston’s nearly 400-year history has led to the development of hidden neighborhoods, historic sites, and iconic parks that tempt both Bostonians and visitors out onto the sidewalks, paths, and trails lacing this close-knit city.
Boston’s North End is all about the scents. Bakeries, pasta shops, cheese vendors, busy wharves, and bustling Italian restaurants all contribute their aromas. Merely wandering around the North End can make you hungry. And when the district’s fascinating history— from a clandestine Revolutionary War signal to a brilliant bank heist—is included, the result is one of Boston’s finest walks."
