North Beacon Hill is a great place to live. It doesn't have much, but it has what you need. We've got the Red Apple for groceries right across from the Light Rail station. There's a couple coffee shops and a brewery just a block from the library. A short walk down Beacon Ave to a yoga studio, a couple bars, a bike shop, and an upscale pizza place. There's a variety of things you can walk to and taking the train anywhere else is easy. And if you're into driving, the 90, I-5, and 99 are super easy to get to from here.

I moved to Beacon Hill last year and moved into a house with three other friends. Out of all the neighborhoods, I spend the most time in Beacon Hill and find it to be quiet pleasant. I have multiple friends who live blocks from me. The night life is somewhat dire, as the Oak closes somewhat early and the other eateries and bars are extremely overpriced. There is a good selection of local food up by the Shell Station on 15th and The Station coffee shop across from Red Apple brings the neighborhood together. The proximity of my house to the train station makes living here very convenient. I am glad I moved here and will continue to live here.
The neighborhood has experienced gentrification in the three years I have lived there and that has helped my property value. There have also been more restaurants opening in the area thanks to the gentrification.
