The North End is the Italian District of Boston. The streets are narrow, so it keeps a lot of cars away to make it a much nicer experience. The restaurants are wonderful, so if you like pizza, pasta, or seafood, you will find quite a...More

We walked from the Boston Harbor Marina and had an excellent evening with a ton of options for food and drinks and desserts. Very safe and many people out and about!

I’ve eaten at so many different restaurants in the North End they have all been great. It’s definitely worth a trip. Make sure you stop at Mikes!

This is a great stop to walk around. You can see some historic sites and start the freedom trail. There is also a ton of great restaurants in this area.

North End is part of the Freedom Trail. We lingered awhile and meandered through the streets and local businesses. Found a fantastic locally owned bakery and bought a few pastries. Loved this area!!

There is tons of history all around you in the north end. The Freedom Trail is a must do and I recommend you do a walking tour with Lessons on Liberty.

Historical walk of a very old area of Boston. Paul Revere’s House, old North Church, parks, old homes and architecture.

Never been to Boston so we settled on the North End for our stay since we love food. The neighborhood is really charming. I'm from Philadelphia so it's very similar. When walking its easy to lose your sense of direction b/c the streets intersect all...More

There must be 150 Italian Restaurants in this neighborhood. In addition, you are just blocks to the Paul Revere House, the Waterfront, the Old North Church. Don't for get the Modern Bakery for some delicious dessert.

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

I love the Harborside Inn, as it's a quick walk over there and a great location.

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
