Acting as an oasis from the usual hustle-bustle of the city, it’s not surprising that Beacon Hill is one of the most desired neighborhoods in Boston. An architect one house drew inspiration from the Ancient Romans themselves, and turn of the century gas-lit streets and brick sidewalks only add to the historic value of this neighborhood. Predominately residential except for the quaint shops and restaurants of Charles Street, locals enjoy the use of the Boston Common and Public Garden, as well as the Charles River and its Esplanade, perfect for daytime outings or just a short walk as accessibility to almost anywhere in the City is within walking distance. Located here are the Massachusetts General Hospital, State House and Suffolk University. Besides walking, the mode of transportation of choice is the train – Beacon Hill is served by the Red, Green, Blue and Orange MBTA lines.
