About your host

As a vigorous storyteller, an armchair historian, and a tour guide in Boston for over a decade, I've fallen in love with this city; particularly the captivating sites and stories that are off the beaten path. If you want to see glimpses of this quirky town from the perspective of a true local...I've got some "wicked awesome" stories for you!

Where you'll be

We will tour Charlestown, and I will provide a history that is not to be found in most guide books. I will give the story of the "Big Dig" from a local's perspective. I will show you the "Insider's" view of the North End I will detail a side of Faneuil Hall and Boston Massacre that only a few know.
