South Boston, commonly referred to as “Southie” was once a predominant Irish community and has since evolved into one of the most desirable neighborhoods in the Boston area. Located to the southeast of Fort Point and Seaport, it’s one of the only areas of Boston with a beach (Carson Beach). The main thoroughfare is along Broadway, lined with brownstones and streetlamps and a great mix of new and iconic restaurants and small businesses. South Boston is proudly home to the nationally-acclaimed, annual St. Patrick’s Day parade which brings in as many as 1,000,000 visitors into the neighborhood. Public transportation is served by two MBTA Red line stops and multiple bus lines in and out of the neighborhood. Car commuters enjoy quick access to I-93 and the Mass Pike.
