This Boston neighborhood feels like a distinct
community unique and separate from the bustle of other

emphasis on being eco-friendly and providing local and
organic food, and a large Hispanic community. Visit
Centre and South streets for restaurants, cafes, and
little shops. The Arnold Arboretum is a beautiful,
large green space well worth a visit if you venture to

If you take the Harvard tour, it finishes about a block from where you started. The Little Italy and North End tour finishes in the North End, not near where you started.
