North End

North End
Boston, MA, 02113, United States

Although relatively small in size, this waterfront community is also Boston’s oldest and most storied residential area, as it was first settled back in the 1630's and is home to historic structures such as the Old North Church (1723) and Paul Revere House (1680). During the first few decades on the 20th century, thousands of Italian immigrants poured into the North End, essentially making it Boston's version of Little Italy. Today, the North End is highly regarded for its Italian cuisine, and hundreds of eateries and tiny shops line its narrow streets, tempting visitors with everything from cappuccino to cannoli.  

Insider Tip:

For a foodie perspective on the North End, chef Michele Topor's North End Market Tours highlight the neighborhood's ethnic groceries and gourmet shops.
