Interesting, but not a Must See
Sep. 2021
If you enjoy older houses and somewhat expensive boutique stores, this might be a place for you. It reminds me of Old Town Alexandria in its' feel. Cobblestone streets and older homes is it nice to take a stroll through, and would be even a romantic stroll in the evening with the gas lights on the streets. It would probably be more beautiful in the fall with all of the trees.

Mediocre Shopping area
Jul. 2021
Now some of it can be explained by Covid effect but the stores were unique but not very impressive. There are better areas to spend your time than St. Charles street.

Beacon Hill self-guided tour
Jul. 2021
I would suggest finding information on the internet that will allow you to take a self-guided walking tour of the Beacon Hill neighborhood. We used that as we walked through the streets.

Beautiful neighbourhood

Walked the streets in this area to take in the brick roads, beautiful brick colonial houses and neat tree-lined sidewalks. Great for a work out with a few hills like joy st.

Picturesque streets to stroll
Jun. 2021 • Friends
We were exploring the area by foot and walked though the beacon hills area. Stopped in a few shops, most of which were pricey. We stopped by the famous acorn street and were lucky enough to get some photos with no people in them! The cobblestone road and old brick houses were so charming and peaceful within the big city. Along the way there were some cute little restaurants with street seating, we hope to go back soon and check a few of them out.

Quaint & Charming Area of Boston!
Jun. 2021 • Couples
We happened to see this area of Boston after our 2 hour Segway Tour. We HAD to go back and I'm so glad we did. It's charming and it takes you back in time. The gas lite street lamps, brick streets and just old time charm. We ate outside at Parmamount Restaurant outside and it was great. Make sure you a block away and check out Acorn St. It's up a hill and it's made of cobblestone. Sooo cute! Definitely a must to see in Boston

Great area for a photo walk

Beautiful area. We booked an approximately 2 hour tour with PhotoWalks Tours of Boston. Saba knew her way around the Beacon Hill area and gave really good advice relative to seeing and taking great photos.

walkable charming history and shopping
Feb. 2021
Old-world brick sidewalks and lighting in a concentrated area. Architecture buffs can have a field day strolling and discovering the 17th, 18th and 19th century townhomes and churches. A plethora of small shops ranging from every day to high-end galleries and shops. Tons of dining choices in all cuisines and price ranges.

Lovely historical Area
Jul. 2020
We took the sightseeing trolley and part of the route included the Beacon Hill area. If you love historical architecture, this is a place to stroll through. The multi-million dollar brownstone homes with artful wrought-iron fence work are wonderful to take in. Beacon Hill is a must-see area!
