Beacon Hill is one of my favorite places in Boston to take our dog for a walk. I have always loved narrow cobblestone streets lit by gas lamps and the old red brick architecture preserved from any type of significant change. As frustrating as that may be for someone renovating their Beacon Hill home, it is one of the main reasons I keep returning for leisurely strolls with my dog and camera. This is definitely one of Boston’s most magnificent neighborhoods.
Today, I decided to scout out some of the hidden alleys, hidden gardens and paths that are off the beaten paths of Mount Vernon, Pinckeny and Charles Street. To me the most photographic parts of Beacon Hill are the hidden and less obvious. Today I took a photograph of one such alley while our dog checked for unsuspecting squirrels.
If you are heading to Beacon Hill to walk with your dog. You might want to swing by the Boston Common to let your dog go to socialize with the other Boston dogs first. Garbage cans for poop bags are few and far between on the hill, please don’t leave it behind.
