Very nice street in the nicest neighborhood in Boston (Beacon Hill). Can be tough to walk this area due to steep terrain and uneven roadways. Did feel uneasy taking pics due to this being a residential area.

Don't know why this is the most photographed street. There are plenty more that are even prettier. A difficult walk for anyone with disabilities.

Super pretty for photos but must be frustrating to live here with tourists all the time. This whole area could do with more public garbage cans

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
