Great place to walk and take pictures. The streets were clean. The street was unique.
The homes were beautiful in the area some of a hill to walk.

Beacon Hill is a charming neighborhood with Federal style architecture; the Massachusetts State House is also located here. The neighborhood features narrow streets with brick sidewalks and gas lamps. The original Cheers is on the Hill as well as other pubs/restaurants. Acorn Street is made of cobblestones and is extremely narrow. When we visited in May, the flowers were incredible! There really isn't much to do here except look at the houses. Visiting the State House is a trip all to itself.

Beacon Hill Hotel was incredible. The quaintness was charming and desirable. The atmosphere was exquisite and the interior design was to the nines. The service was incredible - Austin was such a joy to work with! I could not recommend this hotel enough. We will definitely return!

Stopped by the bar. The views from the upstairs patio are great. Shout out Austin who works there! If you are looking for a place to see while visiting Boston, this area is lovely!

Beacon Hill is a beautiful neighbourhood, fully of photogenic streets. We enjoyed a walk around and a coffee at Tatte bakery before continuing on the Freedom Trail.

In my opinion, if you go to Boston and don't walk through Beacon Hill, you're really missing out. The brownstones are beautiful. Don't miss Acorn Street's cobblestones - very picturesque. We had dinner at 75 Chestnut and it was very good. Lots of history here and the Cheers bar is nearby for fans of the TV show.

Both the Statehouse and this section of the City is absolutely beautiful. Very clean and brimming with beautiful architecture, flowers and window planters, this is a wonderful walk through one of Boston’s storied neighborhoods.

Fun to see this during our Freedom Trail walk. We eavesdropped on some of the larger tour groups to learn more. :)

Nice style, oldy worldy, lots of small independent shops and cafes that bring it it's charm, well worth a slow walk around.
