"A little gem downtown"

If you blink, you might miss School St. It's small, and hidden behind the start of Beacon downtown. But it runs down one of the most charming, historic, and walk-worthy two blocks in the entire city. The first block features the side of historic King's Chapel and the Omni-Parker, where you can have the original (seriously, the original) Parker House rolls and Boston Cream Pie. Then you come upon Old City Hall-and if the gorgeous building and photo-perfect statues weren't enough of a draw, Ruth's Chris Steakhouse is right inside. As you hit the end going into Washington St., you will see a gorgeous Borders and the Old South Meeting House down the street--just make sure you don't miss taking in the haunting beauty of the Irish Famine Memorial, an oft-overlooked site that is one of the most powerful in town.
