Overview

At last, here's a guide to the streets of the real Boston, written by the people who know them best. Compiled by the reputed tour guides of WalkBoston, the city's pedestrian advocacy group, this new guide reveals the secrets and charms of a Boston usually overlooked by other guides-sometimes even by residents themselves. More than 25 walks stretch the usual Boston tourist map and explore the city's unique neighborhoods, sights, and famous suburbs, from the South End's cobblestone sidewalks and the city's revitalized harbor to the hidden hill paths of Brookline. Detailed maps and step-by-step directions, along with historic and cultural highlights, make each walk easy to follow for locals and visitors alike. Distance and difficulty, plus directions by public transportation-by which all of the walks are accessible-are also provided. For weekend visitors, newcomers, and natives, WalkBoston is an essential addition to any explorer's library.
