Spent some time walking around the hill while on the NPS African American Heritage Trail tour. It's extremely picturesque. Even if you don't take the tour Beacon Hill is worth the time to explore if you have it.
I was out walking around, not focused on much, just looking at all of the history around us. After walking through the BOSTON commons, I looked up and saw the state house. It was just beautiful. John Adams came to mind while looking around.
I enjoy a good stroll through Beacon Hill to admire the old stately homes and picturesque alleys. While this used to be an exclusively wealthy neighborhood you'll find plenty of well known chains and stores among the boutique so it is worth exploring both as...More
Walked through this historic neighborhood during our visit to Boston in early October. Beautiful row houses with plentiful flower boxes dotted the narrow streets. The neighborhood is hilly and sidewalks are cobbled in old red brick...caution to anyone with mobility issues. Check out the Cheers...More

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.
