A hill in the city

The nicest part of Boston is Beacon Hill. The leafy trees, classic street lanterns and cobblestones lend this hill its old-fashioned charm. Narrow Acorn Street is still paved with stones from the early 19th century. Running along the foot of Beacon Hill, Charles Street is lined with antique shops, bookstores, small boutiques and cosy restaurants.
