The Joys of Living in Boston, the ‘Walking City’September 10, 2011
Moving into the city has many advantages, but the most enticing of them all is having the ability to walk EVERYWHERE. You really don’t need a car in Boston. Everything you need is steps away from your Boston luxury home - Zagat rated restaurants, clothing boutiques, fresh produce markets, convenient stores, etc. If you don’t feel like walking, there are food shops, drugstores and dry cleaners that deliver right to your front door. Boston is one of the most convenient US cities.
Want to visit another Boston neighborhood? Take the T…. public transportation is a quick and convenient way to get across the city. There are so many unique places to visit within the city limits – it’s fascinating to explore other areas and experience the distinctive and culturally rich environments.
Many people who are unfamiliar with the different neighborhoods will set their heart on one area in the city to move, since they’re most familiar with that particular area. But the more they walk around and explore, the more appealing residential options they discover.
It is exciting to come across different neighborhoods, find hidden squares, and stumble upon tree lined, gas-lit streets. Each has its own charm, history, ethnicity and vibrancy. The South End offers endless gorgeously manicured squares, some with ornate fountains, and small communities with intriguing architecture, like Rutland Square. You’ll see magnificent Venetian and gothic inspired homes here. And you'll find beautiful townhouses and luxury residences in Union Square, Holyoke Street and Worcester Square.
The quaint charm of Beacon Hill speaks for itself with hidden cobblestone alleyways and historic Boston luxury homes adorned with beautiful flower boxes. Stroll along Charles Street near the river and window shop for high-end boutique clothing and breathtaking antiques. The list of Boston neighborhoods continues with the culturally rich North End, the bustling Waterfront, eclectic South Boston, and majestic Charlestown and the Navy Yard.
