Fodor's Expert Review Acorn Street
Surely the most photographed street in the city, Acorn is Ye Olde Colonial Boston at its best. Leave the car behind, as the cobblestone street may be Boston's roughest ride (and so narrow that only one car can squeeze through at a time). Delicate row houses line one side, and on the other are the doors to Mt. Vernon's hidden gardens. Once the homes of 19th-century artisans and tradespeople, these little jewels are now every bit as prestigious as their larger neighbors on Chestnut and Mt. Vernon streets.
