We heard it was the most photographed street so we decided to confirm it. It's very picturesque. The only challenge is to find a time when there aren't a lot of others there taking photos. If you're in Beacon Hill it's worth a stop.

great to walk around ...up and down the hills and see 400 year old houses. Beautiful area, a hop, skip, and a jump from Boston Commons.

This is a lovely street-perfect for pictures with loved ones. For that reason alone, stop by. These are the some of the most expensive homes in Boston. The whole neighborhood is quite beautiful.

Walking through the most ancient road, you feel so wonderful! We were all four members of our family. And may call a great union memory of ours in Boston.

I was only in Boston for an afternoon and deliberately sought this place out for it's reputation as the prettiest street in Boston. It did not disappoint and is a great quiet street for taking a few photos and soaking up the old timer atmosphere.

This is pretty much a photo op but worth it. Parking is at a premium so I parked briefly in resident parking, with my hazard lights on, just to snap a few photos and to let the kids run up and down the whole street...More

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
