Beacon Hill's Best Shopping: Find It along Fashionable Charles Street

Beacon Hill is a classic Boston neighborhood with cobblestone streets and beautiful brownstones to be admired. Nestled within the snug quarters of Beacon Hill you'll find many small independent specialty stores that  sell everything a Beacon Hill resident may need, and lots that visitors will love. Stroll along Charles Street, where the majority of shopping and dining lives and you'll find an array of boutiques, and gift shops that will draw you in to browse and send you with bags filled with goodies to treasure.

Favorites among the fashionable women of the city include Holiday Boutique where you can shop from the racks or have a piece custom made. Ladies rave about Wish where you'll find an impressive selection of designer duds that aren't in every store. While Crush offers a full service experience offering shoppers personal shopping, and even private parties.

Those seeking New England themed gifts will easily be able to open their wallets at Blackstone's of Beacon Hill or The Flat of the Hill where you'll find an extensive selection of merchandise that will please everyone on your list.

With so much to offer in such a small section of this city, it is no wonder tourists and locals alike make Beacon Hill one shopping stop they never miss.
