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.

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.
