From Food to Freedom Trail
We will begin at the lifeblood of Boston, the Boston Harbor, with a walk through a scenic waterfront park, with views of the harbor, East Boston and historic wharfs lining Atlantic Ave. We’ll make our way to the heart of the North End, with views of some of the most historic sites and properties in the neighbourhood, some dating back to the late 1600s and 1700s. Tasty food is never far away in the North End. Your guide will introduce you to a small, hidden Italian bakery serving up fresh bread daily. A proper Italian salumeria is next, where you’ll have a chance to enjoy some Italian meats and cheeses at their finest and freshest. Next up, we’ll take in the energy of the North End’s busiest corridor, Hanover Street, where it’s time for a mid-tour break with your guide at a traditional Italian café. Here, you will have a chance to enjoy your choice of a classic cappuccino, espresso or tea. As you let the caffeine kick in, your guide will go back in time into North End history. You’ll hear stories about some of the most influential events that happened in Boston, including Paul Revere’s Midnight Ride. We will make our way to the Old North Church and step inside the hallowed walls. After church, we’ll dive deeper into the local side of the North End. A taste of pizza awaits at a neighbourhood favourite and then we’ll cap off the North End food experience with samples of the best Italian pastries along the back streets of this delicious neighbourhood. Continue on with your guide beyond the North End neighbourhood for a leisurely stroll through some of Boston’s best markets and green spaces. From the Harbor, we’ll continue past the Rose Kennedy Greenway, State Street and the historic Custom House Tower, the city’s first skyscraper. Then, your guide will lead you toward the famous Faneuil Hall and Quincy Market, which both boast stunning views. Moving into the heart of Downtown Boston, we will stop in front of the Old State House and site of the Boston Massacre. Was it really a massacre or maybe just great propaganda for the Revolution? Ask your expert guide about that one! A short trek through Downtown Crossing brings you to Old City Hall. This beautiful building, done in French Revivalist architecture, was the seat of city government for years in Boston. It also happens to be the site of the birth of public education in America. You'll definitely want to have your guide snap your picture with the bronze donkey outside the entrance. Somewhere along the way during this tour, you’ll have a chance to rest your legs and enjoy a refreshing local beer or non-alcoholic beverage of your choice. Your guide will choose among some of the most historic, quirky and hidden local bars and taverns in the area. On most weekdays, you’ll have a chance to see the government at work (or not) inside the inspiring, historic and beautiful Massachusetts State House, designed and built by famous federalist architect Charles Bulfinch in 1798. Outside the State House, take in the views of modern Boston, including the skyscrapers of Downtown, the Financial District, and the tallest building in New England: the John Hancock Tower. We continue our journey through Beacon Hill, where you’ll have a chance to take in the quintessential architecture of Boston’s red brick row houses. This neighbourhood is one of the most photogenic in the city. Finally, we’ll arrive at the beautiful Boston Public Garden, one of Boston’s favourite green spaces, where you’ll see locals walking the dogs, playing with the kids and enjoying lunch in the shade.
