Description: “Beacon Hill is a 19th century downtown Boston residential neighborhood situated directly north of the Boston Common and the Boston Public Garden. Most people think of city living as anonymous and isolating but Beacon Hill is a cozy enclave filled with nearly 10,000 people that is more like a village than a city. Approximately one-half mile square, it is bounded by Beacon Street, Bowdoin Street, Cambridge Street and Storrow Drive. Charles and Cambridge are Beacon Hill’s commercial streets with Charles known for 40 antique stores, home decorating shops, delectable food shops and several good restaurants. Beacon Hill, also home to the city’s most lavish boutique hotel, XV Beacon, is known for its beautiful doors and door surrounds, brass door knockers, decorative iron work, brick sidewalks, perpetually burning gas lights, flowering pear trees, window boxes and hidden gardens. Its architecture, mostly brick row houses, includes the Federal, Greek Revival and Victorian periods.” {This text from TripAdvisor}
