Boston Public Garden

Boston Public Garden, located along Charles Street adjacent to Boston Common, is the nation's oldest botanical garden. The famous Swan Boats have returned to Boston Public Garden each spring since they were first invented in 1877 by Robert Paget. The business, which operates from mid-April through mid-September, is still operated by descendants of the boats' inventor. When winter arrives, the pond is open to ice skaters. located along Charles Street adjacent to Boston Common, is the nation's oldest botanical garden.

The North End

The North End was home to some of Boston's wealthiest residents and later to the first community of black people created by freed and escaped slaves. In the early 19th century, the Irish began to migrate to the North End in huge numbers and dominated the neighborhood until approximately 1900. The North End then became one of the centers of Jewish life in Boston; Hebrew inscriptions can still be found on several buildings. On January 15, 1919, the North End was the site of the Boson Molasses Disaster. TheSkinny House, reported by the Boston Globe as having the "uncontested distinction of being the narrowest house in Boston," stands near the top of Copp's Hill within sight of Old North Church and Leonard P Zakim Bunker Hill Memorial Bridge. In the early 20th century, the North End became the center of the Italian community of Boston. It is still largely residential and well-known for its small, authentic Italian restaurants and for the first Italian cafe, Caffe Vittoria.

Paul Revere House

You can visit the Paul Revere house located at 19 North Square in the North End of Boston. The Landmark house is one of the only remaining buildings in Boston from the Colonial Period. The house was originally built in 1677, and Revere and his family lived in the house from 1770 to 1800. Revere was made famous by his historic ride on April 18, 1775 when he warned Adams and Hancock in Lexington that the British were coming. Today the house serves as a museum that is opened to the general public. The house is furnished in items that would have been found in the early colonial period. In the courtyard there is a Bell that was cast by the Silversmith in 1804. The Bell in Kings Chapel was also the work.
