Best Neighborhoods In Boston To Visit

Not only is Boston called the ‘Walking City’ it’s also nicknamed the ‘City of Neighborhoods’. With over 21 different neighborhoods, it’s hard to believe that such a small city can be so diverse.

Bostonians take their neighborhoods very seriously. Every neighborhood is almost like a stand-alone town with the residents having strong-rooted pride, culture, and vitality to add to their flavor. And most interestingly of all, you can literally cross over one block and find yourself in a totally different place.

  1. Nice post Marina! I’ve never been to Boston even though it’s only a few hours away. I guess I just hate the Bruins too much. But one day we’ll go and I’ll note your tips!
