  Lovely Beacon Hill
by gilescorey

Now, you gotta wander through Beacon Hill, right?

All those Boston images - cobblestone streets, narrow avenues, leaning townhomes, and buckling sidewalks - that's Beacon Hill, my friend! Sure, there are some tough hills and confusing side streets, but just foray into the hood and discover this charming neighborhood. It's Boston, after all, and you can't get THAT lost.

FYI: bricks are very slippery when wet. Use caution!
