The Dark Side of Boston Walking Tour
Get off the Freedom Trail and walk into the darker side of Boston! This original guided walk through misery, misfortune, malevolence, and murder is based on true historical events that have occurred in Boston. Fact is often stranger than fiction. On this tour through Boston's Dark Side you will hear many dark and disturbing stories they like to keep from the tourists. Topics include but certainly not limited to the dangers of Richmond Street, the scourges of smallpox and the Great Influenza, the vandalization of the Royal Governor's House, the Molasses Flood, and the infamous Brink's Job all against the backdrop of Boston's oldest neighborhood where the corpses on Copp's Hill moved around more dead than alive. Winding among the labyrinth of small streets and alleys in the North End is a great way to get off the beaten path and explore a delightful neighborhood. It's even better when treated to stories of death and misery from Boston's checkered past. We hope you join us for a walk on the Dark Side. Crime, disease, death, and disaster... what better way to enjoy a pleasant evening in Boston! Just don't come alone.
