"It's where to find 'restaurant row'."

The South End is an historicaly designated neighborhood, and represents one of the largest collections of Victorian housing in the city. Beautiful brick structures on shady streets, it is home to a varied mix of ethnicities. It’s considered a great gay area as well as being very artistic and cultural. It is one of the main restaurant districts and its Tremont Street is often referred to as “Restaurant Row”. Also attractive are the eleven residential parks found across the South End. These small residential squares along with sixteen community gardens ensure visitors and residents have plenty of greenspace.

"Art galleries on every corner and lovely brick rowhouses"

The picturesque neighborhood of South End appears to be right out of the storybooks. Complete with Victorian brick row homes, art galleries, an occasional pub, and a large number of upscale dining options make South End one of the most popular neighborhoods to visit.

If you are looking for trendy restaurants that sit alongside a mom and pop grocer then you will find it in South End. The neighborhood has an artistic and eclectic feel. I love trekking down Tremont Street and venturing off on the side streets and then all the way down to Washington Street. You will experience art at its finest and sometimes most raw form. Many up and coming artists are beginning to take up residence in South End and as a result galleries are popping up just about on every street.
