24 Hours in Boston’s Trendiest Neighborhood: The Seaport District

By Shannon Shipman

The Seaport District used to be full of parking lots and abandoned warehouses, and now its Boston’s neighborhood hotspot buzzing with young professionals, new condos, aspiring chefs, and the best views of the Boston Harbor. Even large tech companies are flocking to this new innovative district, making it the ideal location for a work trip.

Check Into Your Hotel

The Envoy Hotel is located along the harbor in Seaport, providing both spectacular views of the Boston Harbor and the Financial District. It is also a 5 minute walk to South Station, the main hub of transportation in this lively city.

Not only is the Envoy an award-winning boutique hotel featuring bold, modern decor and large, luxurious rooms, but it also has the Lookout Rooftop bar which provides the best view Boston has to offer.

Best Coffee Shop

You can’t start your day with a mediocre cup of coffee. Set your alarm a little early and discover Tatte Bakery before starting your busy day.

Not only will Tatte Bakery have the best coffee but the aesthetic is beyond gorgeous. Beautifully designed vintage tile floors provide a striking contrast to the pastry cases full of baked goods to compliment your morning coffee!

Experience the Piers

The Seaport District used to be a thriving shipping industry and the piers still hold local businesses along with old school hot spots. If you work up an appetite while you’re wandering, No Name is a true hole in the wall gem located on the fishing pier. They have been serving fresh seafood since 1917 along with old Boston charm.

And if you want to experience an authentic New England lobster roll, venture down to Yankee Lobster and order the “traditional” roll. This is a must have for anyone new to Boston.

Taste Harpoon’s Craft Beer

Long day of meetings and just need to unwind? Hit up Harpoon brewery and grab a flight or two of tasty beers in the beer hall. Nothing tastes better with beer than a pretzel so add that to the tab as well. If you have time, sign up for a brewery tour for only $5.

Menton is a fine dining French restaurant that is Boston’s only Relais & Châteaux property. And finally Drink, which is all about the craft cocktail. I would suggest enjoying a nightcap in this elegant space.
