In the heart of the neighborhood lies the elegant Louisburg Square, surrounded by federal-style single-family homes built in the 1800s. The nearby Acorn Street, with its narrow and quaint cobblestone alleyway, is one of the most photographed and painted scenes in Boston.
Charles Street runs through the heart of the neighborhood and is host to restaurants, taverns, antique stores, grocery shops, bakeries and cafes, and other retail and business amenities. National chain-establishments are deliberately kept to an absolute minimum.
Beacon Hill is surrounded by conveniently located mass-transit stops, including the renovated Charles Street Red Line Station (connecting riders to other nearby downtown sites going one way and to Harvard University, MIT and Tufts University across the Charles River in the other), the Park Street Red and Green Line Station near the State House, the Bowdoin Blue Line Station and the Arlington Street Green Line Station.
