Boston Strolls

Boston, MA 02108
Boston Strolls offers a unique brand of walking tours that explore often overlooked aspects of Boston's history. On Beacon Hill Uncensored, we stroll through Boston Common and the scenic streets of Beacon Hill as we discuss the seedy past of this now upscale neighborhood and the more colorful characters whose mark on history is often overlooked - a sleepwalking murderer and Boston's earliest known nudist, just to name a few! On Back Bay: Swamp To Skyscrapers, we trace the social and civil engineering of the Back Bay project by strolling from Boston's colonial coastline at the foot of Boston Common to the heart of the new neighborhood in Copley Square. Along the way, we'll discuss the technologies that enabled the city to tackle this ambitious project, the personalities and institutions behind it, and the innovative building techniques that transformed the Back Bay from swamp to skyscrapers.
