NileGuide Expert Says:
Wander through the gas lamp lit streets of Beacon Hill to see the well-preserved old brick houses and be sure to walk down Charles Street to stop in some of the boutiques.
- Beacon Hill is beautiful and old without being artificial. A historic neighborhood that houses politicians, statesman, wealthy families and a handful of lucky college students, it is a regal mash-up of what makes Boston so poignant. Charles Street exists as its main hub, and boasts gourmet bistros, cafes, hotels and shops. The Freedom Trail begins here, the Boston Common lies at its feet, and the Real World Boston firehouse on Mt. Vernon St. still stands - now owned by a nonprofit organization.
