Description

Enjoy an ode to one of America’s historical cities on this self-guided walking tour app. Travel from Copp’s Hill Burying Ground to the George Washington Statue in the Boston Public Garden. See landmark buildings and monuments and uncover the story of the founding of the country with the audio guide. Begins in one of Boston’s oldest neighborhoods, the North End. Listen to tidbits from the Colonial and Revolutionary history of the area and travel as far back as 1692 with a visit to the grave of Cotton Mather, the minister at the hysterical heart of the Salem Witch Trials.  Journey to the Old North Church and to unlock the pre-Revolution years, when Paul Revere organized the midnight riders so they could alert the Minutemen of the arrival of the British. Breathe in the aromas of Little Italy’s restaurants and bakeries to get to the Paul Revere House. Take a stroll along the Rose Kennedy Greenway while you hear about Boston’s ”Big Dig.” Shop around the Quincy Market or catch some of the area’s regular street performers while finding out about Faneuil Hall and one of America’s fiercest proponents of liberty, Samuel Adams.  Stop by the Old State House to hear how future president John Adams magnanimously defended perpetrators of the Boston Massacre. Learn about the two choices that Irish families faced in the 1800s while passing by the Boston Irish Famine Memorial. Explore the Granary Burying Ground to see where John Adams, John Hancock, and Paul Revere are laid to rest. Soak up local stories as you hear about who sent the signal from the Old North Church steeple to Paul Revere and what Revere did after the revolution.  Engage with the past as you find out how 2 million gallons of molasses congealed in the North End in 1919. Uncover the answer to factoids like if Samuel Adams really brewed beer and what led to the creation of America’s first public park, the Boston Common.
