We roamed the streets of Beacon Hill in search of doorways and unique architecture. It was raining and the streets were slick but still enjoyable. If you have the time I would recommend it. Some unique shops and food spots are sprinkled throughout.

Beacon Hill is a pretty swanky part of the city. Staid here at an Air BnB. Right next to the Freedom Trail and the commons.

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.
