Acorn Street is very close to Beacon Hill, Boston Commons, and Cheers. I would not make a special trip just to see this street (although it is adorable), but since it's so close to other must sees, it's definitely worth walking the couple blocks to...More

It was exactly how I imagined it would be. Such a picturesque little street. Love the names of the streets in the neighbourhood. Great to browse around. So much character.

I found my way here. On a busier day though don't expect to have the street to yourself. If you go here please be considerate of others, and after you take your picture, don't stand in the middle of the street talking on your phone,...More

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.

If you are in the area stroll down Acorn Street. It's very quaint, great photo ops, and interesting. Don't twist an ankle though!

The little street really is beautiful and makes for some nice photos. It's easy to get to and in a beautiful neighbourhood. Well worth the walk for a couple pictures.

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
