Centuries-old cemeteries and Boston’s historic Freedom Trail seamlessly blend with Downtown’s modern additions—towering skyscrapers, sleek museums, and Dunkin’ Donuts kiosks. Although Downtown contains most of the city’s tallest buildings, the neighborhood is small enough that you don’t feel swallowed by their shadows. When you’re looking for a break from Downtown’s foot-traffic, relax at the nation’s oldest city park, Boston Common, or its adjacent emerald gem, the resplendent Boston Public Gardens.See places to stay Save this neighborhood
