It would be easy to visit the South End and never venture anywhere else in Boston. Charming historical brick rowhouses, on-trend boutiques and destination-worthy restaurants make this neighborhood a delight. Visits to SoWa Open Market on Sundays, a lively theater and music scene, and an uber-dog-friendly vibe add to its appeal. Created from a landfill in the mid-1800s, it was revived by gentrification in the 1970s and ’80s. Today, it’s arguably the largest urban Victorian neighborhood in the United States — and culturally diverse and still evolving.
