Lots of tourists, the poor inhabitants. Nice street, seen better, but apparently a tourist mecca. We happen to come upon it by chance, its just a cobbled street, nothing to do.

One of the jewels of Boston, tucked away in the Beacon Hill area, the streets are cobbled and lit with gas-lamps. Incredibly photogenic from either end of Acorn Street. It's quite difficult to locate. Start at the Cheers Bar (which is at the intersection of...More

Look up the history of this area before you go. It will help to understand who lived here at the time. The cobblestone streets are delightful as is the park and housing area where Louisa May Alcott lived. The old stable buildings and the door...More

Acorn Street is actually a narrow and slightly steep alley in Beacon Hill, Boston. A miniature of the historic neighborhood, it offers a view of the old America.

This is a beautiful street. However, when we visited, there was a line of about 30 people waiting to take pictures in the street. I understand why people want to take pictures, but I don’t think I’d go back. Definitely check it out if you’re...More

A must see place. Apparently the cobbles are a feature. Unfortunately there had been snow and this was one of the very few streets that hadn't been cleared. However that meant we looked at the buildings instead. Some pretty homes here. Look at the doors...More

This is tiny little street on Beacon Hill. You get to see some cute row houses and cobblestone streets. We commented on the doors in the row houses. This area is just so different than anything we see in the Midwest. Worth taking the short...More

If you ha haven't been to Acorn street, the photos do not do it justice and you absolutely should visit and bring out of town guests. Beautiful cobblestone street, American flags everywhere, gorgeous greenery and flowers everywhere, so pretty, close to a lot of places...More

This street is absolutely beautiful. We met a local, he owns the house with the American flag, and he told us it’s the most photographed street in America. He also said the street was never incorporated into the Boston public street system, so the residents...More

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

widely photographed Acorn street make a nice walking
