Start your journey by opening the map or begin at the first marker on Beacon Hill.
The Walk to the Sea crosses a terrain that, centuries before, was not land at all, but an active port. Beginning at the State House on Beacon Hill, overlooking the old Boston Common, the Walk passes historic monuments and skyscrapers. From Beacon Hill to Long Wharf, the Walk invites you into a history that is linked to the sea, whose smells and sounds once invaded the city. This one-mile interpretive walk through the heart of Boston gives life to that story.
The complete Walk to the Sea route is 1.4 mi (2.25km) in length. From its highest point at the origin in Beacon Hill to the lowest point at Long Wharf, the elevation loss is 90 ft (28 m). By following curb cuts, the walk is ADA accessible.
