“Wanted to stay longer”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013

I was in Boston for one day, so I had a packed schedule and couldn't spend much time here. Beautiful neighborhood with plenty of photo ops and shopping. Loved the old-world feel that most major US cities don't have.

“Olde English Christmas”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2013

This is the place to visit just before Christmas- Very festive atmosphere. Just walk Charles St and some of the lower streets off Charles. Pick any restaurant for dinner. The Gas lights make this area look like a Dickens play.

“Very Interesting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013

We actually were on a Civil War tour and it took us through Beacon Hill. If you're a history buff, then you should definitely take the tour and visit Beacon Hill. I didn't give it an excellent because there are very steep streets that you have to walk up!!

“Lovely area”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2013

Great shops and atmosphere. The best mani-pedi ever - even better than in New York. And cheaper. Lovely part of Boston.
