BEACON HILL

As a little neighborhood with big history, Beacon Hill overlooks the nation’s first public park and the Massachusetts State House. Many of the city’s high-profile public figures call Beacon Hill home, and rubbing elbows with your congressman in the neighborhood’s boutique grocer checkout line is commonplace. Combine its stately black-shuttered brownstones and old-world cobblestone streets with its contemporary amenities and central location, and it’s easy to understand why Beacon Hill boasts such a prestigious reputation.
