Item description for WalkBoston: Walking Tours of Boston's Unique Neighborhoods by Robert Sloane...
At last, here's a guide to the streets of the real Boston, written by the people who know them best. Compiled by the reputed tour guides of WalkBoston, the city's pedestrian advocacy group, this new guide reveals the secrets and charms of a Boston usually overlooked by other guides-sometimes even by residents themselves. More than 25 walks stretch the usual Boston tourist map and explore the city's unique neighborhoods, sights, and famous suburbs, from the South End's cobblestone sidewalks and the city's revitalized harbor to the hidden hill paths of Brookline. Detailed maps and step-by-step directions, along with historic and cultural highlights, make each walk easy to follow for locals and visitors alike. Distance and difficulty, plus directions by public transportation-by which all of the walks are accessible-are also provided. For weekend visitors, newcomers, and natives, WalkBoston is an essential addition to any explorer's library.

Fun and useful for walkmaniacs Jul 27, 2006
The arrival to the USA seems to introduce Europeans into a new dimension. You can't do anything without a car! Distances are enormous and walks aren't pleasant because of the empty sidewalks and high traffic streets. At my arrival at the airport after many years of absence I spotted this pocket guide and bought it right away. What a revelation! It is possible and enjoyable to take a walk in Boston outside the downtown area and actually see many hidden aspects of this beautiful even if sprawled out city. The book is written by a humoristic person that has a first hand experience of what he is talking about and is culturally prepared on history and culture of this town. I enjoyed using this booklet and strongly reccomend it to tourists use to "walking down cities" in their desire to know them better.
