Beacon Hill, located just west of Downtown Boston, is one of Boston’s oldest neighborhoods and likely it’s best known. Beacon Hill gets its name from a beacon that once stood atop its hill to warn locals about foreign invasion. This area is home to iconic residential streets, the Massachusetts State House and America's first African Meeting House. Its architecture and lay- out is reflective of old colonial Boston, consisting of brick row houses with beautiful doors, decorative iron work, brick sidewalks, narrow streets, and gas lamps.
The Boston Common, Public Garden, Esplanade, and Hatch Shell are all adjacent to Beacon Hill, offering residents and tourists a range of recreational and cultural opportunities within easy walking distance. Charles Street, running from Massachusetts General Hospital to the Public Garden, is Beacon Hill's main commercial area. Eclectic boutiques, antique stores, and restaurants serve the neighborhood and Beacon Hill's frequent tourists.
