The Boston Seaport Summer Lineup is finally here! With the Memorial Day weekend almost upon us, things are heating up literally and figuratively. And the Seaport is definitely bringing the heat!

About The Boston Seaport

The Boston Seaport is the area between Boston’s scenic waterfront, and the historic Fort Point District. The area is described on Boston Seaport by WS as “a beacon of all things new and unexpected. It’s a home for technology, innovation, art and doing things a little differently. It’s a neighborhood for what’s new and what’s next.”

The Seaport has become known for many things including: hosting top tech conferences like INBOUND, being home to the state-of-the-art Boston Convention & Exhibition Center, a space for renowned artists to display their work, and if you love to shop and eat, there are plenty of places for you to get your fill.

What’s Next For The Boston Seaport?

As the Seaport continues to become one of the most sought-after spots for businesses big and small, as well as a top residential area, it’s also a go-to destination for visitors to the city. So what’s next? They report that there will be more places to relax and enjoy the outdoors which is much-needed in the fast-paced, stressful world we live in. This will include a pedestrian promenade called Harbor Way. And another new area will be Harbor Square Park that will “bring the atmosphere of a European piazza to the neighborhood.”

With all these new and exciting things coming to the Seaport, they say that no matter what, creating a vital, inclusive community in Seaport remains a top priority. Love to hear that!
