The Munch Around the North End Scavenger Hunt

An adventure fit for a foodie

Dig into Boston’s oldest, tastiest neighborhood, collecting treats and answers along the way. Starring: a smorgasbord of edible and historical delights, including the site of the Great Molasses Flood of 1919, minty hot cocoa, graves of men who really “Mathered,” lobster-tail pastries, octopus tentacles, the center of the infamous Sacco and Vanzetti trial, a welterweight champion, cream puffs, and much more.

Along the way, you’ll take creative Team Photos to document your snap-worthy snacks.

Between-snack highlights include…

  • Paul Revere’s house and a sneaky question about planets
  • The Old North Church and a tricky problem involving, yes, lanterns
  • The early stomping grounds of the Kennedys
  • A site associated with the fight to free Sacco and Vanzetti, wrongly accused of murder
  • A bygone tavern where the owner was arrested for helping Quakers
  • Copp’s Hill Burying Ground, where tombstones are pockmarked by British bullets

Don’t want to spoil your appetite? For private groups, we also offer a version of the hunt that focuses more on local history than food.
