Boston like many metropolitan cities is defined by their diverse and individual neighborhoods and regions. This hub is a melting pot of cultures and neighborhoods. Summertime means a variety of Festivals celebrating the diverse foods, music and traditions of the neighborhoods and people of Boston.
From the early migrants to the recent transplants, Boston’s neighborhoods have Festivals
galore. Boston’s City Hall plaza is adjacent to historic Faneuil Hall and shopping at Quincy Market and Downtown Crossing.
The Plaza is also walking distance to Boston’s North End and
Beacon Hill neighborhoods, Boston Common and Public Garden, as well as Boston Garden.
