Overview

East Boston

Referred to by locals as simply “Eastie,” East Boston is an exhilarating and culturally breathtaking community in one of America’s most celebrated cities. Gorgeous waterfront views from Boston Harbor accompany a bustling business district, including some of the best ethnic restaurants the city has to offer.

And it makes sense, too. Known to history as “Boston’s Ellis Island,” this neighborhood served as a major mid-19th-century foothold for immigrants entering the United States, their influence reflected in the richly diverse communities thriving in the area to this day.

What’s in the neighborhood?

A crown jewel of the city, Boston Harbor gives this neighborhood an unrivaled sense of beauty. Sweeping waterfront views are the backdrop to a proudly vibrant and culturally diverse community, its influence found in countless experiences around town. Tour a world of cuisine and acquaint yourself with the neighborhood on a deeper level with every dish. Or see local collaboration on display at any of six city-maintained community gardens.

There’s a certain splendor to behold in East Boston. Promoting a powerful sense of belonging, the community is a celebration of its multi-cultural history as much as it is a thrilling opportunity to uncover both familiar favorites and fresh experiences.
