Cheers! Beacon Hill & Back Bay Combo Tour

Trip Highlights

Description

Starting atop Beacon Hill by the gold domed 1798 State House, stroll through these historic neighborhoods, one from the early and the other, late 1800’s.

The elegant red brick sidewalks and Federal style townhouses of Beacon Hill have attracted residents from Louisa May Alcott to John Kerry. See the cobblestoned street that is the most photographed in the city, and hear of the famous residents in this charming exclusive Historic District. Architectural detail, flowered window boxes, and wrought iron finishes decorate these magnificent homes.

Why take this tour?

Before entering the neighboring Back Bay, stop for a refreshment at the original Cheers! Bar of television fame. Situated in a regal townhouse, this atmospheric pub will have you whistling the theme to the award winning show. Continue into the Public Garden, our country’s first botanical acreage and home of the Make Way for Duckling statues, then on to the Parisian style expansive boulevard lined with later 1800 granite homes in the Back Bay’s Commonwealth Avenue. Peruse the upscale shops on Newbury Street, and take in the grand architecture of the 1876 Romanesque Trinity Church reflected in the 1976 mirrored glass "Hancock Tower". Have your photo snapped crossing the finish line of the Boston Marathon by the 1895 Public Library in Copley Square. Make a loop to the peaceful Esplanade of the Charles River for a view of where the July 4th fireworks have entertained Bostonians for decades.

 

This is the very best Boston offers in neighborhoods and sights!

 

Walking distance approximately 1.75 miles over city sidewalks and walkways, with very frequentpauses for commentary. Many photographic opportunities.
