Beacon Hill Reviews
I have lived in Beacon Hill for three years. It is not a very diverse neighborhood which is my biggest complaint of the area besides how much it costs to live in the neighborhood. However it is a nice neighborhood for children. It is quiet and nearby parks and is in the center of all public transportation.
My neighborhood is the best of both worlds. It has a residential feel in that it is family and pet friendly, is located near many parks, and is generally quiet, but it is also located in the heart of the city and is within easy walking distance to many stores, restaurants, and museums. There is a wide variety of people here from young families, to older couples, to college students, to young professionals. It also has easy access to public transportation, but is also within walking distance to my job which is downtown. It is on the expensive side, which makes it hard for those just entering the workforce to afford it. However, this is going to be typical in most up and coming cities. Also, the general atmosphere of the neighborhood is very quaint, preserving the historical feel that is at the heart of living in Boston.
