You won’t have to go far to get an in-depth dose of Boston history during your stay at XV Beacon. A number of museums and historic sites are just steps away from this Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star hotel, including the Old State House, Massachusetts State House, Faneuil Hall, the Old North Church, the Paul Revere House and the site of the Boston Massacre in 1770. For those with a deep fascination for the sea, the Charlestown Navy Yard and Old Ironsides, the largest actively commissioned Navy warship, can be accessed via a short ferry ride from the Faneuil Hall terminal.
For more artistic pursuits, you can also hop on the MBTA Green Line from Park Street (the nearest subway stop) and take it seven stops to the Museum of Fine Arts Station, from which it’s a short walk to the museum as well as to the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum.
