Beacon Hill is a teeny little neighborhood, topped off with the gold dome of our State House, and full of charming—and notoriously valuable—townhouses and gaslights. Many of the historic district's businesses boast colorful storefronts along Charles Street at the base of the hill (probably the only sidewalk you can actually wear heels on this side of the Public Garden). Just a stone's throw from the big brand stores on Newbury Street, Charles is a world apart, with exclusively independently owned boutiques. Here we've mapped 16 must-visit stores that make this narrow street a shopping destination.
