Start off your day with one of Boston’s most famous restaurants. The Paramount
in Beacon Hill is well-known for its breakfast. Served up cafeteria-style, expect all the staples—omelets, pancakes, French toast and more. Or, grab breakfast at Parker’s Restaurant
. Specialties on the menu include the American breakfast—two fresh eggs, breakfast potatoes and smoked ham—as well as corned beef hash, a Boston Benedict and more.
After breakfast, explore the antique shops and specialty stores that line Charles Street. Boston Antiques Co. is a great choice for those looking for decorative arts, while Artifaktori is the place to be for vintage clothing. You might also check out some of the historical buildings in Beacon Hill, like the Nichols House Museum, which dates back to 1804, or the Boston Athenaeum, one of the oldest independent libraries in the United States.
