Welcome to Seaport
Modern and cutting-edge, this bustling 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, Convention Center, and Marine Industrial Park.
Art, culture, and history abound 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 spaces that were formerly used as industrial warehouses. New construction mid-rises (many with high-end luxury units) offer lots of residential amenities. The bulk of the area’s population is young and cultured: residents maintain a strong appreciation for good food and wine, which can be found in establishments like ROW 34, a brick-and-wood eatery that serves an extensive oyster menu and plenty of craft beer; flour bakery + cafe offers crackling baguettes warm from the oven, silky-smooth chocolate cream pies, and lemon curd cakes filled with raspberry preserves; and Trillium, a brewery, and restaurant founded in 2013, featuring local ingredients as the stars of their menu.
Seaport is home to many excellent schools. Top educational opportunities include Seaport Academy, a small alternative school for male students in grades 8-12.
