Waterfront

Stroll the Harbor Walk to the Christopher Columbus Waterfront Park.

Welcome to Waterfront

With the removal of the central artery, and the establishment of the Rose Kennedy Greenway, Boston’s Waterfront is no longer isolated from the rest of the city. No sign of this is more evident than the establishment of numerous luxury hotel and residential towers along Boston Harbor, including Battery Wharf, Burroughs Wharf, Greenway Place, and The Residences at Intercontinental.
 
Stroll the Harbor Walk to the Christopher Columbus Waterfront Park, visit the New England Aquarium, or catch a ferry at Long Wharf, all from the Boston Waterfront.
