One of the oldest and most historic Boston neighborhoods, South Boston aka “Southie” has more recently become a popular spot for young professionals to live and work. South Boston has one of the lowest crime rates of any neighborhood in Boston and is home to many fine restaurants and shops. Its close proximity to downtown Boston makes it very convenient to enjoy all the amenities the city has to offer.
The real estate market in this Boston neighborhood is booming and recent new development to the Seaport District is bringing another wave of new life to the area as more restaurants, hotels, and businesses open. In addition, South Boston is home to many parks and attractions, including Castle Island, the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center and the Institute for Contemporary Art which gives residents access to many outdoor and cultural activities. Surrounded by water, South Boston boasts miles of urban beaches and some of the best views of the city.
