What a story teller that Park Ranger is, he really keeps your interest. I grew up in the North End and he said things
I never knew about it. Thumbs up to him.
The Rangers at the Boston NHP do a fantastic job, and I highly recommend grabbing a tour (in Season) from Faneuil Hall. They are free, and as you can see from Eric’s, excellent with “grade A” content and history. Each Ranger puts their own twist on the tour, so if you’ve taken one, feel free to tray another – there is plenty new to learn. A great way to spend an hour or so, by yourself or if you have visitors.
