When you’re into photography, point your campervan towards the North End area called Little Italy. The area is currently the oldest inhabited neighborhood of Boston, and it exhibits an old-world feel that is immensely photogenic. Some of the iconic buildings here include the Paul Revere House from the 1600s and the Old North Church, which dates back to the early 1700s. If you happen to be in town on the last Sunday of August, make sure you attend the Feast of St. Anthony, a vibrant celebration referred to as the “The feast of all feasts” by National Geographic.
