Welcome to Seaport
On the cutting edge of design and culture, this emerging community is home to Boston’s contemporary art museum
Located on Boston’s waterfront, just across from downtown, this “innovation district” is one of Boston’s most rapidly growing neighborhoods. Filled with close to 100 restaurants and eight different hotels, this area includes four neighborhoods: Fort Point, Fan Pier, the Convention Center, and the Marine Industrial Park.
A popular destination for tourists and locals alike, there is plenty of art, culture, and history here. Visitors can explore the Institute of Contemporary Art’s collection of masterpieces, hop on an Old Town Trolley, bring the family to the Boston Children’s Museum, or take a tour of the Boston Tea Party ships. Harbor cruises host sightseeing tours, waterfront restaurants serve everything from breakfast to late-night snacks, and a host of concerts and events are featured at the Blue Hills Bank Pavilion, one of the city’s largest outdoor amphitheaters.
Real estate here is a mix of condo and apartment conversions, developed in space that was formerly used as industrial warehouses. New construction mid-rises (many with high-end luxury units) offer lots of residential amenities.
