“One of my favorite areas to walk when I visit Boston.”
Review of Charles Street

Lots of fun shopping on this street and yummy treats. Also, it is so close to Beacon Hill you can enjoy a walk there. I got off the MGH/Charles red line stop and worked my way down to the Boston Common. Be sure you take time to stop in any shop that interested you - it is such a fun street! I like it better than Newbury Street myself.

Visited with my sister and walked around in the freezing cold. The street gives a perfect representation of how it might have been difficult to get around on cobblestones! ha! In any case, the shops are very nice, if expensive, and the restaurants are warm and welcoming. Definitely worth a stroll!

Best walk is the end of Charles street north of the Common/Public Garden. This runs at the foot of Beacon Hill north towards the Mass Gen Hospital. Start with a cup of coffee (OK, I'm a Starbucks junkie). Next Deluca's (gourmet grocery, closed for renovations last I checked). On your left, Upper Crust pizza - great for whole pies, limited choices for slices. On the right, Beacon Hill Hotel & Bistro - great for Saturday brunch. Left - Bin 26 Enoteca nice wine bar, usually not too crowded. Lots of trinket shops and little boutiques clothing stores. Cute little US Post Office on the left. At the north end of the street, Savenor's market is a nice gourmet shop right across from a decent Thai restaurant (King &I) .
