Went to the Blue Hills pavilion for a graduation, but could clearly see that this would be a great place for a concert or other activity. Concession prices were acceptable and that's a plus. Good sight lines.

We had backstage passes for this venue and we were thrilled to not only meet the band, but find out that the outdoor venue is a great place to see a show. It's outdoor but covered so rain won't bother you, and even the further...More

Seaport District / South Boston Waterfront
This area has been expanding and becoming more and
more popular, for good reason. Not surprisingly, the
seaport district of South Boston is located
beautifully along the water. The area is designed for
easy strolling along the HarborWalk, and there are
bars and restaurants for all ages and budgets. The
Institute of Contemporary Art is located in this area
in a contemporary building with an absolutely stunning
