When I picked Boston as the city to spend my birthday, I didn’t really think about what to do there. (I had so much going on with internships and the end of the college semester!) It didn’t really matter anyways since my favorite way to explore is to just walk.
So I was pleasantly surprised when I picked the blue route on the Freedom Trail map which went through Boston’s Beacon Hill neighborhood. It’s historic and super picturesque…
1. Walking out of Boston Common (a park in downtown Boston) to enter Beacon Hill
2. Townhouses while walking up the hill (there really are hills in Beacon Hill…)
3. So many trees everywhere and it was a beautiful day!
4. The neighborhood seemed to be well cared for. The majority of houses had flowers by the windows.
5. Those window shutters!
6. One of my favorites. Trees, windows, doors.
7. Did you know Louisa May Alcott (author of Little Women) used to live in Beacon Hill? This was her house.
8. 1 Pinckney Street. Apparently it’s one of the oldest, built before 1800!
9. So pretty.
10. Narrow roads.
11. Kept wondering what the real estate is like… can I live right here?
12. A sort of hidden house… surprises everywhere!
13. And coming out of the narrow roads. These buildings face Boston Common.
