South Boston, or “Southie” as it’s affectionately called, exudes a cinematic quality. Not far from Downtown via the T, Southie boasts panoramic views of Pleasure Bay and locals whose accents still hint at their Irish ancestry. Although the movies often portray it as a tough as nails neighborhood, South Boston has steadily exposed its softer side—organic markets, waterfront parks, and new condominiums are continually springing up in this beloved and storied community.See places to stay Save this neighborhood
