When the sun's shining in Boston, nothing beats a jaunt to the ocean to feel the sand in your toes. Avoid the trouble of renting a car with this hassle-free full-day excursion, complete with travel from Boston to Martha's Vineyard. Just hop aboard your bus from the city to the shore, where you take a ferry from Cape Cod, and enjoy the day soaking up the sea breeze.

Took a picture here quietly back in November and an middle aged/old lady up the street yelled at me and threatened to call the police while stating I was clearly not from here. Maybe because I am a minority. She claimed it was a private way and that I was unlawfully trespassing. If I had been on her property or even at the base of her steps I'd agree. I was not. I was in the middle of the road. It is a private way. The middle of the road is not taxed as such. A private way by the city ordinance of Boston still allows for public foot traffic, city vehicles, and other such traffic bar heavy trucks. All that it means is in exchange for not paving the cobblestone way (a tactic used by the residents to prevent development), that residents must pay for the sewage lines under the street and pay for upkeep in terms of maintaining the road under weather conditions. It in no way means that they can prevent entry or foot traffic on the middle of the road. They are not taxed for the middle of the road and any upkeep is agreed upon via city ordinance. I am a Boston property lawyer and am familiar with the laws. If they threaten to call the police on you and you were only in the cobblestone road and or most areas of the sidewalk (certain properties extend inward and thus have rights to their specific strip) you are indeed not violating any sort of law. Also to the racist white lady- next time you speak like that expect your face to be plastered over the city with your exact quotation so we can all know who you are.

It’s a pretty area of Boston, for a European travelers not so surprising since we come from a place where old cobblestone streets are rather our daily normality ;)

This is an amazing cobblestone street lined with historic brick houses. It's a very short walk, but worth it if you're interested in historic homes and architecture. (5/2018)

Apparently one of the most photographed streets in the world. When you see it you understand why. Lined with gorgeous red brick towering houses, narrow cobbled road, a large American flag hanging from one house. Just a lovely place, as is the surrounding area. From here we walked to Louisberg Square were you’ll see the most expensive houses in the city.

Acorn Street is very short and only takes a couple of minutes to walk, but it’s one of the loveliest streets I’ve ever visited. The narrow cobblestone street is lined with historic brick homes. It’s a fantastic photo opportunity, plus you can just imagine people walking this street over 200 years ago. I appreciate how well the homes have been cared for and that visitors are encouraged as long as they’re respectful of the current residents.
