Romantic, atmospheric Mama Maria is a classic north end destination. The restaurant has been serving Italian fare since 1973. Be sure to get a reservation, especially if you are stopping by on a weekend. The menu features cured meats and cheeses, pastas, and fine wines. You might want to opt for some seafood – It is all freshly caught in New England.
The Paul Revere House
We all remember reading about Paul Revere and his Midnight Ride in school – How he warned American revolutionaries, including Samuel Adams and John Hancock, about the arrival of the British during the American Revolution. In the North End, you can see where he lived! The modest admission fee of $3 allows you to get a glimpse of what daily life looked like in the 1700s. You will also get to see some amazing preserved artifacts, many of which belonged to Paul Revere himself.
If you want to take in a hilarious show, stop by the Improv Asylum on Hanover Street. There are live sketch comedy and improvisation shows every night. There is also a bar, in case you prefer some libations with your laughs. If you are interested in getting onstage, Improv Asylum is the place to be. It has adult classes, so you can join the fun not just as a spectator, but as a writer or performer.
