Welcome to Waterfront
Locally renowned for its high-end housing and extravagant views
Bordered by the North End and the Financial District, this section of Boston has no official boundaries but is locally renowned for its high-end housing that features extravagant views, private boat docks, and luxury amenities.
Located in the heart of the city, walkable to many of the area’s best restaurants and shops, the Waterfront is surrounded by a variety of Boston’s most popular attractions, including the Boston Harborwalk, the New England Aquarium, the Boston Children’s Museum, and more.
A great place to live if you work in the Financial District or anywhere downtown, this area also offers easy access to many of the city’s highways, transportation, and Logan Airport.
Once one of America's busiest ports, Boston’s Waterfront still contains several wharves and existing structures — think Faneuil Hall/Quincy Market — dating back to the 18th and 19th centuries. The center of a significant development boom in the 1970s and ‘80s, several condominium projects and hotels were constructed then, and a more recent wave of luxury development and restaurants has reinvigorated the area since the opening of the Rose Kennedy Greenway in 2008.
Consisting of an exclusive enclave of harborside homes, this nautical neighborhood is often considered a world all its own. The neighborhood attracts professionals and young families due to its central location and attractions, such as the Boston Common and New England Aquarium, make the area truly unique.
Since the neighborhood is located on the waterfront, residents benefit from beautiful harbor breezes and the calming sounds of water lapping against the docks. Popular restaurants like the historic Chart House and Rowes Wharf Sea Grille offer great food and remarkable sunsets.
The Greenway adds a lot of welcome commotion to the Waterfront: modern art installations rotate there in warm weather, and residents gather for a range of outdoor recreation. The Harborwalk, a long stretch of weathered planks that run between the neighborhood buildings and piers, is also a neighborhood highlight.
