We really enjoyed the great presence of this gold domed historic building. We were able to get beautiful photos with the whole front in picture. Very handy to the Commons and Gardens. Many restaurants near by. Close to parking and sub way.

If you are looking for cute shops and fun restaurants, Charles Street in Boston's Beacon Hill neighborhood is hard to beat. Just north of the Boston Common it is easy to get to with public transit. Highly recommend!

Although only a short visit; it was well worth the time spent here. Given more than a day in Boston I feel a coouple of hours is needed to soak up the atmosphere in this area.

Cobblestone streets, old and historic homes, shady sidewalks, amazing door knockers. A bit hilly but you feel smarter just walking these streets!

We arrived just as a free guided tour had begun. The lady was knowledgeable and took time to answer questions when asked. The tour took about 1 hour.

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.
