Cobblestone streets, old and historic homes, shady sidewalks, amazing door knockers. A bit hilly but you feel smarter just walking these streets!

We arrived just as a free guided tour had begun. The lady was knowledgeable and took time to answer questions when asked. The tour took about 1 hour.

We walked thru BH and observed all the old homes/apartments. Wife totally enjoyed all the brick homes and trees/colors. Halloween decorations were cool too.

Lots to see and do. Taverns, shops, churches and historic stops. Start with the capitol. Find a restaurant or tavern for a drink. Don't miss the shopping.

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.
