The prettiest street in Boston and certainly worth a visit if you can fit it into your itinerary. Like a step back in history!

The visual of this little street lived up to the hype...but you better make sure you get there early enough to beat the crowd/photographers/models, etc...it can sort of muck up your own photos.

We made a quick stop on Acorn street for a photo op during our personal tour of Boston. Our tour guide provided many fun little tidbits of information as we walked along the cobblestone streets. Very good place for a picture!

In this area of Boston the houses are well presented to stay historical accurate but Acorn st is a cobbled street and well worth finding, well maintained and worth a photo.

The only cobbled street left in Boston; a must-see. The whole area is beautiful in it's own way; Acorn Street is the icing on the cake

Very nice historic street with cobblestones. It is in a beautiful residential neighborhood, and worth taking some pictures.

Beacon Hill
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
