Best way to see this is by one of the cycle tours. You can see where John Kerry lives as well as other prominent notables

Beacon Hill is an excellent place to spend some hours walking around. If you go, make sure you walk the beautiful Acorn Street!. Enjoy!.

I walked a few streets up and down and found it very interesting. Acorn Street was great. Many good photo opportunities. Saw a few houses from the Black Heritage Trail. Charles Street, Mt Vernon St, Louisburg Square all worth a look. Good exercise to boot.

Take a leisurely stroll through the neighbourhood behind the state capital. Quiet streets with gas light street lamps lit during the day. Beautiful and quiet area, wouldn’t mind living there if I resided in Boston.

Beacon Hill is just so charming, with its brick footpaths, old style street lamps and flower baskets at house windows that you assume it must be contrived. However, the history here is very real, and in fact the neighbourhood is listed as a National Historic...More

I visited this most beautiful building as I wanted to visit the president Kennedy statue. Although it is outdoors you have to access through the building. The staff are most helpful

Loved hearing the history and how parts of the hill have been removed to take for landfill. This was part of The Freedom Trail walking tour. Our tour guide who was in costume led us to the top telling us the history along the way.

Wow, such a quaint and quiet neighborhood! The stroll through this neighborhood was peaceful, with quiet streets that were almost deserted! The streets and houses are all brick and historic. The neighborhoods are very clean. Definitely obvious why this neighborhood is desirable! If you like...More

We did two walking tours through here, one historical and literary the other architectural and they were both in-depth and very interesting

Across from a park, this heritage building is easy to walk to from most places downtown, visited on a Segway tour just as a priest was ending.

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.
