Beacon Hill, Boston
Beacon Hill’s narrow cobblestone streets and quaintly tucked-away brick town homes make this neighborhood one of the most understated in Boston. It is one of Boston’s smallest and most historic neighborhoods, as well as one of its most prestigious. The tightly knit community provides a welcome atmosphere for young families, while Boston Common and The Boston Public Garden make for beautiful playgrounds. Snugly surrounding the State House and only steps from Massachusetts General Hospital, Beacon Hill is a popular neighborhood among local lawmakers and medical professionals.
Take a stroll down Charles Street, Beacon Hill’s main thoroughfare, and you may catch a glimpse of neighborhood resident Senator John Kerry slipping into a local boutique or buying fresh fruit at Dean and DeLuca’s Market. Tour the gold-domed State House after a relaxing lunch at a quaint outdoor café, or take a run along the Esplanade and enjoy the Charles River. Residents of Beacon Hill have the entire city at their fingertips.
