Just outside of downtown is a neighbourhood full of history that is still making an imprint today: West End. Come see what this side of town is all about on your next trip to Boston.
Begin your exploration of the neighbourhood at one of the most notable features in town: the West End Museum.
The West End Museum spotlights the long history of immigrants bringing their own special flavours of culture and cuisine to this side of Boston. The old businesses were largely dispelled or destroyed during the urban renewal campaign of the 1960s that spread throughout the downtown area, but the stories of yore remain honoured at the museum. The Otis House is another museum worth a look. During the 18th century, this mansion in Bowdoin Square was home to the mayor. Tours are available to view centuries-old antique furniture and portraits lining the home.
You might spend much of your afternoon indoors, but remember to make some time for the sea. Head over to West End’s Nashua Street Park. With a long jogging path and plenty of benches overlooking the water, it’s an excellent spot to enjoy the view of the West End and beyond.
