Boston - Beacon Hill & Boston Common (Chapter)
This is the Beacon Hill & Boston Common chapter from Lonely Planet’s Boston guidebook.
This area is home to the start of the Freedom Trail and the gold-domed Massachusetts State House. But the appeal of this neighborhood lies behind the landmarks, along the cobblestone streets lit by gas lanterns - a quintessentially Bostonian landscape.
- breathe in the sweet smell of flowering trees and blooming beds as you admire the seasonal display in the Public Garden
- explore the Massachusetts State House in search of the Sacred Cod and the Holy Mackerel
- pack a picnic for an evening of Shakespeare on the Common
- restaurants & bars
