Roam in a quarter renowned for its tall and majestic ships, its 1830s Greek Revival warehouses and counting houses, and its late-1700s Federalist buildings.

The tour also stops at the famed Paris Café, where Thomas Edison, Annie Oakley, Teddy Roosevelt, and Buffalo Bill were guests.
Listen as your expert guide weaves riveting tales of seafaring intrigue while you explore off-the-beaten-track historical nooks. You will also visit Jeremy's Ale House, a respite for the first responders in the aftermath of 9/11.
Your tour takes you past famous sailing ships docked at the seaport and haunted venues such as the ageless Bridge Cafe. You will also explore the 150+-year-old print shop where printing is still done on antique printing presses!
