Located on Beacon Hill and a rich part of Boston’s historic roots, Acorn Street was established in the 1820s and is home to Mt. Vernon’s illustrious gardens. On one side of the narrow, cobblestone road lie the mystical gardens, and on the other, well-maintained colonial homes. At one time, 19th century artisans and tradesmen inhabited these homes, which are among the most photographed treasures in Boston today. With hotels, restaurants, and shops right around the corner, it manages to feel like an escape from the bustle of the everyday. There’s only one word for Acorn Street – charming.
