Fort Point is nestled on the southern edge of Boston’s Waterfront between the Fort Point Channel and the Seaport District and was known for its role as a defensive system in colonial times. What was once strictly commercial waterfront is now a diverse arts community, becoming a hotspot for many of Boston’s up and coming restaurants, hip venues, and home to several emerging tech companies. Fort Point incorporates the site of the infamous Boston Tea Party and home to Boston’s Children’s Museum and the future home to Martin’s Park scheduled to open in 2018. Boston Fire Museum is located on Congress Street offering visitors a look into some of America’s earliest firefighting equipment and artifacts including a fire engine built in 1793 by Paul Revere! Contemporary local attractions include the Boston Convention Center and the Lawn on D, a popular summer destination offering a beer garden, food trucks and outdoor activities! Commuters enjoy easy access to the Central Artery and a Water Taxi to Logan Airport.
