The Fort Point neighborhood is steps away from Boston’s Financial district and in the midst of the Seaport District and South Boston. Fort Point’s booming artist community brings color, culture and creativity to this neighborhood. Home to the Boston Children’s Museum, Trillium Brewing and three Barbara Lynch restaurants, Fort Point has so much to offer along the Rose Kennedy Greenway.
The once-forgotten Seaport District has emerged as a thriving community, where the trendy and hip play along the port of Boston. Blue Hills Bank Pavilion hosts top musical artists April through October. The Institute of Contemporary Art, Harpoon Brewery, Strega on the Waterfront, and Legal Harborside restaurants are just a few of the local favorite top spots to add to your list of must-sees and must-dos.
South Boston, or “Southie” as the locals call it, sits along Boston Harbor and is home to the largest Irish population in the city. Catch the St. Patrick’s Day parade the Sunday after St. Patrick’s Day, when the whole neighborhood turns into a giant block party. Visit in the summer and enjoy a stroll along Castle Island while exploring Fort Independence. Play along M Street Beach or Carson Beach in the summer sun.
