Historical Walks around Boston

United States

More about us...

Boston is a great ‘walking’ city, fun to explore by foot from the waterfront promenade to shady parks and streets lined by distinctive red brick buildings. Most of the marinas are located in the very desirable North End district, a really charming and historic neighborhood, with a maze of alleys and streets filled with Italian pastries, restaurants and old buildings.

Old Boston Tours offer very interesting guided tours of the oldest parts of the city.
