About South Boston
South Boston, a part of town known as “Southie” to locals, is one of New England’s most distinctive destinations. Our South Boston vacation rentals situate you close to the restaurants, sights, and landmarks that make this area wonderful.

South Boston’s History and Location

Originally an Irish-American community, this neighborhood has seen major development in recent years. It’s also home to some American Revolution sites such as Dorchester Heights, the point from which George Washington forced the British to evacuate. The monument at Dorchester Heights offers sweeping views of the city and harbor. Our South Boston condo rentals sit to the southeast of Cambridge, home to most of the city’s main universities.

Things to Do in South Boston

Every March, locals and visitors gather for the St. Patrick’s Day Parade in South Boston. Dress up in your finest green and join the festivities - be sure to reserve a South Boston vacation rental to stay close to the fun. Later in the year, the neighborhood’s high points are prime vantage points for the Fourth of July fireworks over the Boston Harbor. History comes alive at the Boston Tea Party site, and there's plenty to see at the Boston Fire Museum and Boston Children's Museum, too. On slower days, jog, walk, or bike out to the Lawn on D - don’t forget to pack a picnic. If you're attending an event at the Boston Convention Center, this neighborhood is the place to stay.

Our South Boston condo rentals make sure you won’t miss a second of action in this charming neighborhood. Visit South Boston for the holiday festivities and stay for the history, sights, and culture!
