Take the kids along for a trip back into time as you walk some of the oldest streets in Boston to explore some great architecture of Bostons oldest Buildings around Boston and Stop by the State house for a tour.

Get a feel for Boston by walking the streets and visiting parks in the Beacon Hill area. Quaint shops, beautiful architecture - take some time and walk.

I lived on Beacon Hill 40 years ago in my late teens, loved it then and hadn’t really changed. Love walking around the quaint streets and the steep back of the hill. The State House is still amazing.

Beacon Hill is truly a unique neighborhood. With its english style architecture and charm, it is worth visiting. The picture opportunities are endless. It is one of the few well preserved large historic sites in North America.

If you like historic neighborhoods, take a walk through this one. An African American walking tour that ends up at a small but nice museum and meeting house is ok, but just free yourself to walk the beautiful, gas lamp lit streets.

We figured we were not the first people to walk this neighborhood and say "wow I wonder how much that house costs." Decorated for the holidays, these houses are just beautiful and worth your time when downtown.

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.
