“Lovely”

Went back for a stroll having been there a couple of years ago. Still a beautiful area of the city. Lovely shops and restaurant on Charles St. A must if you go to Boston one day!

“Beautiful monument”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2013

Beacon Hill is a beautiful monument that has a beautiful view of the river/lake, the USS Constitution (on a clear day), and the skyline of Boston. Plus, it's a beautiful walk through Charlestown. Don't skip this!

“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.
