About Beacon Hill
Beacon Hill is one of Boston’s premiere neighborhoods with its charm and grandeur shining like a lighthouse over the city. A National Historic Landmark, this neighborhood is nestled in a prime Boston location, while keeping its quiet and distinguished character. Gas lanterns and brick sidewalks give the neighborhood a unique and historic feel throughout, particularly with the gold-domed State House featured atop the hill. Fine homes, townhouses and condos make up the majority of this residential neighborhood. Charles Street, otherwise known as “Antique Row” features many fine restaurants and rare goods for the home. Commercial spaces do change with time, and there’s now a good balance of contemporary shops and cafes as well.
The area overlooks several of Boston’s prized possessions including The Boston Commons, The Public Gardens, MGH, and The Hatch Shell on the Charles River. This neighborhood is considered one of the top locations for enjoying summer concerts, running, dog walking, boating, and more. It’s incredibly walkable with a Walk Score of 98 and a Transit Score of 100, as it has access to all of the subway lines including the Red Line, Green Line, Blue Line and Orange Line.
