"By the sea"
First things first: if you're driving this street, you probably don't have the best opinion of it. You're also cheating yourself out of some great sights. It may not look like much down in the South Station area. But take a few hundred paces north, and you'll start appreciating the beauty that Atlantic Ave. is hiding away. Your neck will hurt from trying to drink in all there is to see! You have three of the best views of Boston Harbor in Rowes Wharf, Long Wharf, and Columbus Park. And on the other side of the street, right on top of I-93, is a green piece of recent Boston history: the lush Rose Kennedy Greenway. Add in great nearby dining options and attractions, and nearby Quincy Market, and you have a street that can also be an experience, whether you're a visitor or a lifelong resident.
