From the golden dome of the State House to the elegant homes of Louisburg Square, the Beacon Hill tour travels picturesque streets, highlighting examples of early American architecture with particular emphasis on the work of Charles Bulfinch.


Experience Beacon Hill’s ornate past, from its rural beginnings to the vision of the Mount Vernon Proprietors, while walking among this historic collection of Federal and Greek Revival row houses. You will also hear the stories of Boston's prominent citizens who have called Beacon Hill their home.


Scheduled early in the evening during the week and weekend afternoons, a walk through the shaded streets of Beacon Hill offers a pleasant repose from a hot summer's day. Afterwards, you can enjoy dinner or lunch in one of the many restaurants along Charles Street.
