Most Bostonians don't even know this place exists. Very old and well kept burial ground and worth a stop if in the area.

I love old cemetery’s and this one is old. So much history here. It’s along the trail and worth a quick visit. Remember to be respectful as it is a place of eternal rest.

How is it possible that I grew up in Boston and never visited this burying ground until I walked The Freedom Trail with my kids? Truly a hidden gem! Set in a very quiet neighborhood, this is a peaceful place with views of Boston Harbor....More

Paul Revere, Sam Adams, and Cotton Mather all buried here. A lot of interesting epitaphs on some of these old gravestones. The British had used this area in preparation for the Battle of Bunker Hill and used some of the gravestones for target practice.

Good grief. It's a cemetery. How can it be a 5 or a 1? It's a wide open space with a bunch of tombstones. If you're into that sort of thing then go. We walked through and carried on for a cup of coffee.

Relative to other Burying Grounds visited, Copy’s Hill was not as crowded and you were able to actually spend time looking at grave stones and other materials. The view from Copp’s Hill Terrace is also very nice. In particular, the view of Bunker Hill and...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
