The Boston Globe


OpSail is an excuse to explore the new Boston waterfront

There’s a new neighborhood in Boston, in case you haven’t heard. She doesn’t have the brownstones of Back Bay, the parks and ponds of Jamaica Plain, the restaurants of the South End, the college feel of Allston, the urban flavors of Roxbury, or the pubs of Southie. But she has water, water, everywhere, a slew of new restaurants, and a new strip of green space that’s going to be this summer’s go-to spot.

If you haven’t checked out the Waterfront yet, consider this your introduction, a cheat sheet in no particular order of dates to mark down, highlights to visit, and restaurants and cafes to hit. Clip it. Save it.
