This was New Year's Eve and we had an 8pm reservation at an old favorite: 75 Chestnut, a restaurant on Chestnut St in Beacon Hill almost on the corner of Charles and Beacon which has the Boston public garden on one corner and the Common...More
Beacon Hill is caught between Backbay and North End - the 2 places most frequented by tourists. While it's not a big swinger like the other two, it still does have a few things to display, the State House being one of them along with...More
Architecture was superb. Looked very English. Block paved pavements albeit a little uneven overlooking Boston Common. Filming for Little Women with Emma Watson in a couple of the houses whilst I was there. Lovely outlook and well decorated on lampposts for Christmas. Very pretty.
We lived here 50 years ago, as newlyweds, and rented a 5th floor walk up on Pinckney street for only $25 a week, while we worked restaurant jobs. It was very heart-warming to find the place looked as good as we remembered. The cobblestone and...More

Either start or finish at The Liberty Hotel on Charles Street (at the beginning of the Longfellow Bridge, where the Charles / MGH T station is). It is a luxury hotel set in a converted jail, where many of the features have been carefully preserved. The main feature being a soaring 90foot ceiling in the Atrium and the cell catwalks and wrought-iron work from its 1850's construction. It's 3 minutes' walk from the Charles River Esplanade, and 4 minutes from Beacon Hill's boutique shops and restaurants on Charles Street. If you have time, detour up to Acorn Street for a bit of cobble-stoned history.
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.
On restaurant.com I found a coupon for Kennedy's Midtown Restaurant in Beacon Hill (Province St). Any opinions on this restaurant. If you guys don't know about restaurant.com...........you gotta check it out. It is an awesome site ! Thanks !!

Hi, Maybe Restaurant.Com says that Province St. is on Beacon Hill, but it's really in Downtown Crossing/Government Center area. I've eaten there a couple of times. It's an old-style Irish pub, with the typical Irish pub food (burgers, shepard's pie, fish and chips). To be honest, unless there's some reason why you must be in that exact area to eat, there are many, many better choices. Silvertones, which is on the next block (Bromfield St.) is one place I'd pick well before Kennedy's.
First Time to Boston - Recommendations (3 Replies)
Hi - my family and I are traveling to Boston July 27 - August 4. It will be our first trip. My kids are 8 and 12. We're staying in Beacon Hill and so far have tickets to a Red Sox game on Friday and Saturday. No other excursions have been planned yet and I'm anxious to get our itinerary laid out. I plan on the Freedom Trail for sure.....would like to take the kids to see Harvard. I've been reading many forum posts and taking notes on suggestions. For people who have been - I see a...More

I will take a crack at a piece of the question. If I had 1 day to leave Boston, I would go A. Rockport and Cape Ann B. Plimoth Plantation C. Concord /Walden Pond Why- Cape Ann is less area to cover but still has nice shops, views, beaches, food PP- for the history and close to Plymouth which has ocean front restaurants, stores, views and a great cupcake store (forget its name- maybe Charlie's?) C/WP again history, swimming in Pond, not too much driving so longer day doing stuff ...More

Good places for a woman to eat alone (4 Replies)
I'm in Boston in April, on my own? Any recommendations for places to eat at night where a woman on her own wouldn't feel too uncomfortable? I usually do the "read a book" thing. I'm open to most kinds of food so any help would be great. I know Boston fairly well, I'm staying in the Beacon Hill area. Thanks.

I have done the "read a book" thing, too :). There are plenty of casual but good restaurants in Harvanrd Square, and some newer places in the Prudential Mall, both accessible by subway. If you don't have a cheesecake factory near your home, there's one in the Prudential Mall, and also at the Cambridge Side Galleria Mall. There are tons of restaurants along Newbury Street, a nice long walk from Beacon Hill, or close to the green line. Most of them have a bar area as well, if you're comfortable...More
