Located on Boston Harbor, the Seaport District is the City’s final frontier of development, as each parcel transforms from a waterfront parking lot or aging office space into a brand new development. The Seaport District (formerly an industrial outland of South Boston) is a location in its own right and anticipates much development to come in future years. The infrastructure of new roads, connectors to the Ted Williams Tunnel, I-90 E/W, and I-93 N/S, and two large government projects – the recently built Federal Courthouse and brand-new Boston Convention &Exhibition Center — have paved the way for several new hotels and restaurants.
The Seaport District is a vibrant mix of condos, marinas, hotels, artist’s lofts, and restaurants. The new Institute of Contemporary Art is an architectural masterpiece overlooking the harbor. Nearby, the newly renovated Boston Children’s Museum invites you and your kids to explore the world around you. The area’s centerpiece is the new, state-of-the-art Boston Convention & Exhibition Center, which draws thousands of visitors to world-class conventions each year.
The Seaport is accessible via the MBTA Silver Line Waterfront, originating at South Station, which features a food court, public restrooms, lockers, and parking.
