If you ha haven't been to Acorn street, the photos do not do it justice and you absolutely should visit and bring out of town guests. Beautiful cobblestone street, American flags everywhere, gorgeous greenery and flowers everywhere, so pretty, close to a lot of places...More

This street is absolutely beautiful. We met a local, he owns the house with the American flag, and he told us it’s the most photographed street in America. He also said the street was never incorporated into the Boston public street system, so the residents...More

It was nice to see this old cobblestone street. Easy to get to and close to a lot of bars/restaurants

This sweet little street is probably as genuine 18th century as you will find. The homes, and especially the rough stone street makes this a favorite place to take photos. Homeowners are in on the tasteful decorating for each season, who would not want to...More

Beautiful neighborhood within walking distance from Cheers and the Boston Commons. Try to go on a weekend morning to get a beautiful picture of one of the oldest streets in America without the crowds.

I absolutely had to see Acorn Street!! I am already in love with the Beacon Hill neighborhood and this little alley is the cherry on top! The old cobblestones and the brick, just amazing! Definitely worth the little walk up the street!!

Cute small narrow cobblestone Street with American flags and quaint individual homes. Most definitely worth the time to walk up the small hill.

We were lucky enough to be the only ones on this street on a early morning walk. It's beautiful to see. If you have time, wander around the surrounding streets as well. A beautiful area with gorgeous house fronts.

It's a short little street very near the Cheers Bar on Beacon Hill so it's worth a stop and a photo. Cute!

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
