You can take a mural tour north of Boston this summer — all you need is a car and a map.

In April, the North of Boston Convention & Visitors Bureau launched a “North of Boston Mural Map” highlighting the artwork displayed on buildings across communities north of Boston. It’s the perfect social distancing activity this season as folks head outside to explore their communities, according to Ann Marie Casey, executive director of the North of Boston Convention & Visitors Bureau.

“Many of them, you can just take a ride by car and see,” Casey said. “Obviously, be socially distanced, go in small groups.”

There are more than 100 murals all throughout Essex County, Casey said.

The map lineup includes murals such as “Cat Witch” by Okuda in Salem, “Peoples of the First Light” by Nicole Salgar and Chuck Berrett in Lynn, “Our Fallen Heroes” by Augustine Garcia in Lawrence, and “John Greenleaf Whittier” by Jon P. Mooers in Amesbury.

“It’s all public art,” Casey said. “It’s all free. It’s all available 24/7.”
