Anyone who grew up near Boston (or even visited 5-10 years ago) probably remembers Boston’s Seaport as a vast wasteland of parking lots. That’s definitely not true anymore!
Visitors to the Seaport now find restaurants aplenty, large corporate offices, and brand new condo buildings, as well as plenty of green space.
Today we’re sharing some of our favorites around Seaport: restaurants, coffee shops, stores. One of our offices is located at 77 Sleeper Street, so we’re locals! If you’re considering moving to the area and want to chat, we’re happy to meet you for coffee at one of our favorite places. Just let us know!
