South Boston Neighborhood

The local, South Boston neighborhood, of Boston, Massachusetts, offers some of the finest dining, shopping and hotels in the country. Commonwealth Avenue Mall features some of the most beautiful, and oldest, residential brownstone buildings in Boston. Hence, the narrow, rectangular park affectionately referred to as “Comm Ave,” is the heart of the neighborhood. Thus, many of the local residents can be found walking their dogs here. Additionally, the most famous parks in Boston are only blocks away too: Boston Common and Boston Public Garden.
