South End

Quick Details

Explore Boston’s Picturesque South End

The South End has come a long way since its start as a narrow strip of land surrounded by water. Fast forward to the 21-century, when the charming area with picturesque streets is one of the most culturally diverse neighborhoods in Boston. 

Explore the scenic neighborhood blocks, each with their own individual character. Learn how to creatively photograph the South End’s attractions: elegant townhouses, rows of decorative iron railings, pocket parks, the colorful mosaic mural symbolizing Puerto Rican culture, and the energetic vibe along Tremont Street in the early evening. Bring a tripod along, because there are photo ops during the golden hour and blue hour.
