This is a charming part of town and what you picture in your head when thinking of visiting Boston. Quaint shops, beautiful townhouses, tree lined streets, cobbled sidewalks.

Very central with good access to the rest of the city on foot. Very hilly so if you aren't fit maybe not for you, especially on a day which is 98 degrees. Felt safe and it was quiet on our three night stay.

One of the first stops on our Freedom Trail tour, and loved this building! It just sits so powerfully over the Boston Commons, and you can really imagine how the city looked in the 1700s. The inside was nice, not a huge amount of information,...More

This is a great part of town to stay in! It's easily accessible to the River Esplanade as well as Downtown, and it's very walkable. The small, narrow, winding streets transport you back to a time in history when cities weren't designed around the automobile....More

Beacon Hill is lined with historic homes; lovely landscaping and many hills to climb! But the historic nature of its location, next to the State House, is a must self walking tour at any time of the day.

Walked all over this hilly part of town. Good workout and lots of sites to see in this part of town.

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

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.
