I am a house freak. If you are a house freak too and love to obsess about them, peek in their windows to catch a glimpse of the decor, and take in every delightful detail, you must walk this neighborhood. On this particular week, I...More

A very rewarding walk through interesting streets steeped in history, with a strong feeling of neighbourhood. Along the way, we visited a most amazing wine merchant. Only slight disappointment was that we expected the area to be rather larger than it actually is!still, definitely worth...More

I have been on guided tours of the Statehouse as an educator, citizen and on an impromptu tour on Student Government Day. The history going back to the 1600's and into the Revolution, Civil War, and the history that follows is fascinating. These guides love...More

We stayed on Charles Street. Perfect for seeing the sites. Beacon Hill has lots of cool restaurants and shops as well.

I enjoyed walking the alleys and taking pictures of the widows and visiting antique shops. This place is full of history, good food, antique shops and boutiques.

The building is an historical importance. But I could not get much of its significance. It is closed for the visitors. I assumed it must be having a museum and we can get a glimpse of its inside, but we were disappointed.

If you think of a classic city neighborhood for Boston this is it. Narrow streets old brick Condo's and common right next door . Glad we stayed here!

Set up on a hill with its glistening gold dome and brick facade it truly Is a gorgeous government building. Stunning iron work and historical cemetery sits adjacent makes it worth the visit.

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.
