Our favourite part of the city. The quiet cobbled side streets retain the charm. Since there is a bit of climbing involved, it’s easy to leave the tourist hordes behind and find tranquility on a Saturday morning. Lovely architecture and lovingly maintained properties

Boston is a very walkable city. You can either walk there and experience some of the Freedom Trail, or you can catch an uber. Depends on your level of fitness and whether you will have all your suitcases with you.
