"quiet street convenient for walking!"

Lime street is a very quiet side street, almost narrow enough to call it an alley! Like most of the Beacon Hill area of Boston, Lime St. is lined with pricey brick townhomes. There is not much in the way of shopping or dining on the street itself, but the neighborhood of Beacon Hill has many great restaurants and boutiques, just a short walk away. Boston Commons and The Esplanade park are also just couple of blocks away from Lime.

"Good for Families and A World Away"

The famed Cheers bar - Bull & Finch Pub - from the television show is on Beacon Street at Brimmer Street on Beacon Hill. It sits across from the Public Garden. It's just around the corner from shops-filled Charles Street. Brimmer Street is a nice residential street on the lower part of Beacon Hill. It is not far from the Charles River and the Hatch Shell where amongst others, the Boston Symphony plays. There are very lovely homes here. There's something about this area. It feels like another country. This is a good street for families.
