365 Things to Do in Boston - New Tips Daily

Walk the Irish Heritage Trail

Posted by Susie Callahan on Mon, Mar 16, 2015

 

In light of St. Patrick's Day, explore more than 300 years of Irish-American history by walking the Irish Heritage Trail. The tour is 3 miles long, with 20 stops, highlighting many important historical events in the lives of those of Irish descent in the city and its surrounding area.

"As a cultural tourism group, we want visitors, residents and educators to learn about the state's largest ethnic community as a way of appreciating American culture, heritage and history.

And secondly, we created this Trail as a way of advocating for the care and restoration of these precious historical landmarks, many of which need to be refurbished. We place a value on these landmarks with hopes that they'll be preserved and maintained for future generations."

Educational and fun, this tour is a great way to wrap up St. Patty's Day celebrations.
