About Downtown Boston

When people refer to Boston as "The Hub", they very well may be referring to Downtown Boston. On the subway (the "T") alone, over 400,000 people flow through Downtown Boston, either on the Orange Line or the Red Line.

Want to see what it's like on the ground? Take a Google Maps "street view" stroll through Downtown Boston!

It's got retail, dining, theaters (movie and stage), bars, clubs and anything else you can imagine. Also, the main drag — Washington St — is mostly closed off to vehicles, so you'll find people spilling into the streets and walking about moreso than in other neighborhoods where pedestrians are relegated to the sidewalk. And Faneuil Hall — a huge shopping plaza set in historic Quincy Market — is one of the most popular destinations in Boston for locals and tourists alike.

Don't miss out on the brand new Boston Public Market, as well! This permanent, year-round market opened its doors in summer 2015 and features fresh, locally sourced food. It's a huge step for promoting the local food movement in Boston. Check it out!

If you're looking for a quiet and cozy neighborhood, then Downtown Boston is definitely not your spot. But if you're looking to be in the middle of the action, with any part of Boston a simple T-ride away, then this may just be where you belong!

Downtown Boston is flanked by the North End, Beacon Hill, the Seaport District and Chinatown.
