Delight in Boston’s best pizza and beer on this historic 2.5-hour walking tour around the city. After meeting the guide, begin this Boston pub crawl in the North End, the oldest neighborhood in the city. A slice of pizza at this end of town equals a slice of history. In fact, the infamous Great Brink’s Robbery happened here, the largest heist in the history of the United States at the time, back in 1950.
The fun has only begun. Head to Charlestown to see the sites, including the Bunker Hill Monument, the USS Constitution and a tavern that dates back to 1785. Have another helping of pizza here before taking a quick ferry ride to the historic Long Wharf pier. Check out Old North Church, where the famous “One if by land, and two if by sea” signal is said to have been sent, and the Old State House, the oldest public building still standing in Boston. Get an amazing view of Boston Harbor and the city skyline from Fan Pier.
It’s a short walk back to the North End for a final piece of pizza and a trip to the Blackstone Block, the oldest commercial district in Boston. The tour ends at either Bell in Hand, the longest continuously operating tavern in the United States, or the Green Dragon, a basement tavern known as the Headquarters of the Revolution. Have a cold one to commemorate the moment and toast the day.
