The Things To Do In Beacon Guides
Beacon... It's awesome here!
So many things to see and do, from cultural enrichment, to retail therapy, to glamorizing hair and nails. Did you know that Beacon has three makeup counters? It's true. Not to mention, a lash extensions bar too. And a couple of Irish dive bars mixed in with craft beer haunts, breweries and a distillery. We're hip - the fashion continues as it once did at the turn of the century when Beacon was known as a hat factory town. A Little Beacon Blog has organized Beacon's businesses in one convenient place, so that you can navigate each shop, restaurant, location for amazing classes, and more.
