Locals know the Seaport neighborhood is where it’s at, with tequila cantinas, avant-garde art galleries, Japanese-inspired ice cream parlors and harborside sunsets.
Leaving the shimmering skyscrapers of Downtown Boston behind, cross Evelyn Moakley Bridge, and you enter the newly revamped neighborhood of Seaport. Slicing through the hottest district in the city is its namesake street, Seaport Boulevard, where you’ll find the best of harborside life. Colorful sculptures line the polished thoroughfare reflecting its artistic edge, rooftop bars afford sweeping views over the water, and buzzing restaurants serve up market-fresh seafood. With so much crammed in, we’ve got the lowdown on where to start.
For a more varied gaming experience, head next door to Kings. It offers a veritable playground of activities, including air hockey, ten-pin bowling, shuffleboard and retro arcade games. To get you in the mood, the bar serves a long list of draft beers – in 34oz (one liter) mugs, if you’ve really got a thirst on. Line your stomach first, though, with some of the excellent tacos or shareable plates.
