All over Massachusetts, the pride for its largest city runs deep. Ask any resident within 50 miles of the capital where they’re from and you’re almost guaranteed to hear: “Boston.” This intimate city is known for historic locales, some of the country’s finest colleges and zigzagging cobblestone streets. But don’t let all that quaintness fool you. Boston knows how to party and boasts a vibrant nightlife scene with dance clubs and live music venues, where locals are known to get a little raucous in the name of a very good time.

Seaport District


Located on the south side of Boston, the Seaport District is dominated by large wharves jutting into the bay. Glass-walled high-rises give this stretch an upscale and contemporary feel. But because history is omnipresent throughout this city, you’ll feel that, too (there was a tea party that happened here, let’s recall). The best way to take it all in is at the Lookout Rooftop & Bar — a nearly year-round venue thanks to fire pits — offering 360-degree views.

North End


This area is Boston’s de facto Little Italy, a charming tangle of narrow streets, lined with old-school Italian coffee shops and restaurants. The North End is also home to Paul Revere’s house and one of Boston’s hottest debates: Who has the best cannolis, Mike's or Modern Pastry? (Italian bakeries are serious business.)

A mix of high-end shopping areas and quiet, tree-lined streets, this neighborhood is where the city’s poshest residents call tony brownstones home. The Parisian-style boulevards were made for leisurely strolling, and the Charles River Esplanade is one of the city’s best picnic spots.
