The popular TV show Cheers, which ran from 1982 to 1993, featured this Beacon Hill bar’s exterior in the opening credits. The outside looks the same—and many visitors pose for a photo right here—although the interior is nothing like the show. “This is a tourist trap for sure,” wrote one fan on Yelp, adding: “Lucky for them I love getting trapped. Touristy stuff is a must do for me when traveling.” Legions of other visitors agree. Also check out the “replica” Cheers in Faneuil Hall Marketplace (tel. 617/227-0150; T: Government Center.) which looks a lot more like the set, and also has outdoor seating.
