Beacon Hill

Elegant brownstones, gaslights, cobblestones, home of the Brahmins who once ran the town. If you must, Cheers is at 84 Beacon Street (be aware that the lines are long and the bar doesn't actually look like the one on TV). It's across from the Public Garden, where you can take a ride on a person-powered Swan Boat and pet the statues of Mrs. Mallard and her ducklings.


Beacon Hill is a beautiful place to stroll around. Elegant buildings, calm atmosphere. See how the wealthy Brahmins used to live. Cool Charles ST to sit and take coffee or buy an antique or two. Wear good shoes, the cobbles are painful
