5 Best Neighborhoods in Boston for Young Professionals

When you’re young and just starting your career in Boston, you’re probably looking for a trendy, reasonable place to live. Purchasing a new home is a step in the right direction, whether your career keeps you in Boston or you’re just planning to relocate. To help you determine where to live in the city, the following short list outlines some of the best neighborhoods in Boston.

Dorchester

This charming neighborhood is the largest in Boston and has a diverse group of blended cultures. The business district is filled with ethnic restaurants, shops and salons. The crowning jewel of the neighborhood is the 527-acre Franklin Park, where you have access to plenty of green space, an 18-hole golf course, zoo and walking and jogging paths. Enjoy the riverfront at Pope John Paul II Park, relaxing at beaches along the harbor or boating and fishing activities on the Neponset River. With convenient access to Boston by MBTA, you can easily plan a day out on the harbor or a night out on the town.

Hyde Park

Another commuter-friendly gem where you can set up a household is Hyde Park. There’s plenty to do, beginning with an assortment of eateries. If you want to show off your golfing skills, make a tee time at the George Wright Golf Course. Situated along the Neponset River, the charm of this neighborhood is displayed in the many restaurants and small shops available to you.

Jamaica Plain

Cultural diversity blends seamlessly in Jamaica Plain, making the neighborhood an interesting and exciting residential destination. Streets are lined with small businesses and traditional restaurants. The small town vibe and community atmosphere offer you plenty of socializing and outdoor opportunities. At any time, you’ll see neighbors biking, jogging, fishing or taking a walk beside Jamaica Pond. In just a short walk, you can tour the grounds of the Arnold Arboretum or the Samuel Adams Brewery.

South Boston

South Boston is one of the best neighborhoods in Boston if you aren’t interested in adding extensive commute time to your daily routine. The neighborhood has everything close at hand, from shopping and dining venues to bars and excellent views of the annual St. Patrick’s Day parade. Another plus to living in South Boston is its quick and easy access to downtown. Public transportation helps you get around town to shopping and dining venues, the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center, Fort Independence (located on the 22-acre Castle Island), Boston Harborwalk and the Institute of Contemporary Art.

Charlestown

One of the best neighborhoods in Boston for downtown commuters who appreciate old-world charm is Charlestown. As you take a stroll down Main Street, stop at one of the many local restaurants or make your way to City Square for lunch. While touring the area, you can enjoy the views along the Mystic River and Boston Harbor. From the pier at the Navy Yard, you enjoy stunning panoramas of the Boston skyline. After you take in all the city’s glory, you can please your palate and thirst at Warren Tavern, the oldest in Massachusetts, right in your new neighborhood.
