South End


Experience the South End

Located just minutes from downtown and the Back Bay,  the South End has become one of Boston's most popular neighborhoods. It has attracted a diverse blend of young professionals, families and a vibrant gay and lesbian population to this Boston Landmark District. You will be sure to notice the South End's renowned Victorian brownstone buildings and homes as you walk along Tremont Street, Columbus Avenue and Massachusetts Avenue. Some of Boston's finest restaurants, a thriving arts community and nearly 30 parks also call the South End home.

Restaurants in Boston's Seaport District!


The South End is a vibrant center with eclectic art studios, experimental theatres, and independent boutiques and galleries. The beautiful SoWa Arts + Design District coexists alongside more modern developments like Ink Block to make the South End a true microcosm of Boston, where history and innovation are in constant conversation.

Lined with brick bow-front town houses, most of which were built in the mid-1800s, many of the homes here have hidden gardens. Explore it on foot to discover pocket parks, tiny bakeries and some of the city's best restaurants. The South End and neighboring Roxbury share cultural and architectural histories that blend seamlessly around Massachusetts Avenue.
