Logo   Seaport District, Boston, Massachusetts
Revitalized and redeveloped, Boston's former maritime-industrial district is now among the city's most exciting and active areas for arts, museums and great meetings.  




Boston's Seaport District, just east of Fort Point Channel (map), was once filled with warehouses, shipping piers and railroad tracks, but it is now the epicenter of Boston's convention and exhibition activity.

The Boston Convention and Exhibition Center (BCEC) and the Seaport World Trade Center draw thousands of attendees to meetings and exhibitions of all kinds. The district has its own collection of good hotels. More...

Boston's extraordinary Institute of Contemporary Art is within walking distance of these two great meetingplaces, and is a must-see if you are nearby and have any interest in leading-edge art, architecture and design.

The Boston Children's Museum is also within an easy walk of the two large meeting-places, as is Boston's HarborWalk and South Station Transportation Center.

Chinatown and the Financial District are not much farther away.

The Black Falcon Cruise Terminal, 666 Summer St (map), is at the southeastern limit of the Seaport District, and always active when there's a cruise ship in port.

South and east of the Seaport District is the traditional center of South Boston ("Southie"), traditionally Boston's Irish bastion, where St Patrick's Day is an official holiday.
