Beacon Hill begins directly across the street from Boston Commons. Just walk around on your own going up and down the street to enjoy the housing. Acorn St. is only one block long and is fun because it is so narrow and still has a...More
The Hill is a wonderful place to wander. From the artifacts at the Statehouse to Louisburg Square to the shops and restaurants on Charles St., lots to do and see. And you are a short walk to the Common and the Public Garden, Cheers bar,...More
A wonderful neighbourhood that carries so much history for Boston. Reminiscent of both Paris and New York, or maybe it's Quebec City and San Francisco? All of the above.
Stroll off the beaten path (with a map) and find some neat little pieces of architecture,...More
We rode the Amtrack from NY Penn Station to Boston, South Station from there we walked to our hotel in the Beacon Hill area. The 11 minute walk from South Station to the Wyndhan Hotel made me home sick for NY"s, Manhattan, 8th Avenue area....More
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

Either start or finish at The Liberty Hotel on Charles Street (at the beginning of the Longfellow Bridge, where the Charles / MGH T station is). It is a luxury hotel set in a converted jail, where many of the features have been carefully preserved. The main feature being a soaring 90foot ceiling in the Atrium and the cell catwalks and wrought-iron work from its 1850's construction. It's 3 minutes' walk from the Charles River Esplanade, and 4 minutes from Beacon Hill's boutique shops and restaurants on Charles Street. If you have time, detour up to Acorn Street for a bit of cobble-stoned history.
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.
