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.

Seaport District / South Boston Waterfront
This area has been expanding and becoming more and

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

in a contemporary building with an absolutely stunning

There are seats/ tables at the back of the regular seating that are on concrete/tar. Not sure about the section towards the stage. Sound was fine for us :)
