Beacon Hill is one of the most affluent and historical parts of Boston. You will find many historical locations here including the Boston Public Garden and the Massachusetts State House, which has a dome that is leafed in gold. The oldest public park in America, Boston Common, is situated here. You can visit the park during the summer months to enjoy the Frog Pond or during the winter, if ice skating is your preference. If you get hungry, visit Cheers, which is the local bar that inspired the television sitcom.
