  • Acorn street is considered one of the most “instagramable” places in Boston and it obvious why. The narrow cobblestone road is probably the first thing people will notice. The stone are small and creates a really unique look. The colonial style architecture and the red brick also make this place stand out. Acorn street is situated deep within a neighborhood far removed from busy streets. While seeing a vehicle is rare, there’s bound to be a few people taking pictures of this quaint street. Even if your not taking pictures Acorn Street and the many smaller roads around Beacon Hill are worth taking a peek at if you’re looking to enjoy another side of Boston.
  • This is one of the most photographed streets in Boston!!! Very European looking!! Not what you expect to see in the United States. River stones, from the banks of the Charles River, make up the street. They are the earliest form of cobble stones and were put into place about 200 years ago!!
  • Cute, narrow, cobbled stone street that is the quintessential old-town Boston that you see in the movies. This street is famous, but I found the small off-shoot streets surrounding it to be just as idyllic. Definitely worth a visit and a walk around the neighborhood. (Wear sturdy shoes, the cobbles are ankle breakers)
  • Absolutely spectacular area of Boston. You can truly imagine Paul Revere riding down these streets saying the "British are coming." Best place in Boston for pictures and is certainly the most European area of the city.
  • Lovely visit for a step back in time to colonial America, especially in the Fall when the leaves are golden and crunch softly underfoot 😍 Strongly recommend a stroll around this area if visiting Boston.
