In their 2022 summer travel guide, Yankee Magazine named Old North Church one of the best destinations in New England! Their blurb about the church perfectly captures what makes Old North a can’t-miss stop for any Boston vacation:
Old North Church
On the eve of its 300th anniversary in 2023, the church famed for hanging the “one if by land, two if by sea” lanterns that sparked Paul Revere’s midnight ride is still bringing history to light. In addition to learning about the architecture and Revolutionary War history of the city’s oldest church, visitors this summer will be offered a clearer picture of those who first worshipped here, from free and enslaved Black congregants to those who benefited from cacao smuggling and the slave trade. Also new at this Freedom Trail favorite: daily tours of the church crypt, and a retail shop dedicated to New England artisans and small businesses.
