Beacon Hill is one of Boston's most gorgeous - and prestigious - neighborhoods. Its not too difficult to see why if you have ever visited the historic area yourself. Aptly named for a 17th century warning beacon that used to stand atop the hill, the site is now home to rows of old Federal-style homes. They line the steep streets, with facades all similar in appearance: red brick complete with decorative black shutters. The hill's unevenly cobbled walkways are some of the last that still feature gaslit lamps - and tend to look straight out of a old fashioned movie. For some seriously Instagram-worthy shots, travelers can head over to Acorn Street, known to be the most photographed street in America. The Massachusetts Statehouse is also located in Beacon Hill, for any architecture or history buffs. While purchasing a home in the neighborhood costs a pretty penny, those just looking to visit can stay in a HomeAway while taking in the scenery. Read on for some beautiful Beacon Hill homes sure to amaze.
