Boston's Seaport Revival
Nov 27, 2013
About the Guidebook
The Seaport in Boston used to be a place no one went to. Empty parking lots and a few dive bars dotted the landscape. Old 1800's buildings sat vacant for 100 years before construction began right after the financial crisis of 2008.
What's happened over the last 5-7 years is nothing short of amazing. The influx of new businesses, restaurants, hotels and cool hip new bars is happening and it seems like every month something new sprouts up worth checking out. This guide is going to lay out what to see in two short days. It's a very walkable area and will give you a real pulse on what the future of Boston will look like in the years to come. This area may very well define Boston.
Local Knowledge & Cool Perks
I have been a local resident of the Seaport and Fort Point Channel since its resurgence. I haven't come across anyone who has a better pulse on what's going on here than me.
I know most of the bar and restaurant owners as well as several of the other establishments. Most of the places that I recommend I can give you detailed information on. If you need to get to the rooftop bar on a busy Saturday night at Legal Harborside or get a table at Empire message me when you're in the city and I'll help you out.
This guide is perfect for young people visiting the city during the summer or local residents of New England looking to see what's been happening in Boston since they moved out to the suburbs.
