It's a short little street very near the Cheers Bar on Beacon Hill so it's worth a stop and a photo. Cute!

The idea that this street has survived the tons of photographs and "wow's is remarkable. The most photographed street in Boston deserves a visit because you will remember it always.

This street is narrower than the others on Beacon Hill but no more charming than the rest. I wouldn't travel out of the way to find that specific street but certainly visit Beacon Hill.

Make some time to walk around the old neighborhood. There are beautiful Boston townhouses, brick and cobblestones. Acorn Street with it's river rock. Shops and restaurants along Charles Street. It's a smaller neighborhood just off the State House.

Beacon Hill
Visit this historic and ritzy Boston neighborhood to
soak up its classic New England charm as you stroll
down cobblestoned, gas-lamp lined streets. Bring your
walking shoes, camera, and select a nice day to wander
through the hilly neighborhood and check out its
exclusive addresses. Louisburg Square, Mt. Vernon
street, Chestnut street and the extremely narrow and
widely photographed Acorn street make a nice walking
