With a history of over 130 years, Boston’s Chinatown is one of the oldest residential Chinatowns in the nation. Through the ACDC Chinatown Walking Tour you learn about the origins of the neighborhood, hear stories of community struggle and activism, and discover the continuing legacy of immigrants in the neighborhood.
A-VOYCE youth and ACDC staff provide you with the street-level knowledge of Chinatown that goes beyond the restaurants and the Gate. As residents and community workers, our youth guides know the back alleys and the hidden stories.
