"Beacon Hill Area is Beautiful"

Well, just the fact that Louisa May Alcott lived in this neighborhood would be a clue that the houses are somewhat pricey. It is so worth it, with the "square" historic feel and tourists constantly stopping to ask questions. This block is very quiet and ;most travel on foot. There are shops and restaurants within walking distance for those of culinary leanings. The people are very friendly and take pride in their neighborhood. Finally, Boston Common is within walking distance and is a wonderful place to exercise or just hang out.

"Way ritzy and pricey"

This is a very quiet street, and very ritzy and pricey. a townhouse sells of almost 10 million dollars on this street. It's also very historical, was home to Louisa May Alcott (named after her, in fact!) Noteworthy for a tourist's trip, but unless you can afford it...don't bother.
