One of the oldest neighborhoods in Boston. Beacon Hill is close to the Boston Commons and the Massachusetts State House. You can easily jump off the trolley or tour bus and walk to Beacon Hill. Stroll though the beautiful streets that quickly whisk you away...More

Dont miss walking Commonwealth and seeing all the statues and trees. Equally gerat is Beacon Street and others further up. Quaint elegant brownstones that maek you think you are walking in London Dont miss Acorn St, its small but mighty! Old cobblestone street.

This hill in Boston has a quaint neighborhood that makes me feel like I am strolling through a storybook. Really great place to stay, walkable to many main sites and easily accessible to the T stops nearby.

Beautiful building, so much bigger than the front suggests. Our young guide was very interesting and knowledgable. Very small cafe and difficult to find our way out. Definitely worth the visit and it was free entry too.

This place is great if you like to shop. Several antique shops as well as locally owned small shops. A little more expensive than some places but more of a local flair.

A great place to start your tour of the Freeedom Trail. The building is just outside Boston Common and is right at the start of the trail, definitely worth taking some great pictures for the memories.

We had a really pleasant morning strolling around this area, admiring the Georgian houses , many with lovely window boxes. A quaint touch is all the street gas lights still functioning. Cobbled streets must be a rarity as well. Nice coffee shops and some interesting...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... More

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.
