Description

Boston Strolls are leading walking tour guides in the city. A great way to witness what Beantown has to offer, avail of their interesting and off-beat excursions. Back Bay Deconstructed traces the history of the neighborhood's evolution. Once a marshy land encroached by immigrants inhabiting the North End in the early 1800s, the area is now an oasis of high-rises and skyscrapers. Work towards the transformation began in 1858, much-credited to cutting-edge engineering. The tour starts from Boston Common all the way to Copley Square, and celebrates the people and organizations that were the driving force behind the project.
