Welcome to South Boston

Spend the day visiting the wonderful shops in Downtown South Boston. Browse for hours in antique shops, get a haircut, select the perfect gift for someone special in specialty shops, take home a bouquet of flowers, furnish a home or wardrobe, do your banking, take a cardio kickboxing or yoga/pilates class, pick up the local newspaper and relax over a cup of cappuccino, grab a delicious lunch, try some creamy delicious gelato, or go to see a great show and pair it with a fabulous dinner at a AAA 3 Diamond Rated restaurant. Stroll the tree-lined streets, enjoy the Victorian architecture, and soak up the small town atmosphere. Whatever your pleasure, Downtown South Boston has it all!
