The South End on Yankee Magazine’s Blog

Victorian Eclectic

South End Historical Society Executive Director recently contributed to Yankee Magazine’s Explore New England blog, encouraging tourists to consider the South End for their next day trip into Boston. Read an excerpt from her piece below:

“On a day trip into Boston, you may feel compelled to visit all the traditional sights: walk the Freedom Trail, take a duck tour, or grab a drink at Cheers. But if you’re a little more adventurous and want to step slightly off the beaten path, consider taking a day to explore the city’s South End.

More intimate than the Back Bay and more idiosyncratic than Beacon Hill, the South End is one of Boston’s hidden treasures. Although it is close to the heart of downtown and directly borders the ever-popular Back Bay, the traditional tourist barely ever sets foot in the South End. Nonetheless, this historic neighborhood has grown at an incredible rate, owing its vibrancy to world-class restaurants, unique shops, lush green spaces, and a thriving artistic community.”
