What is the most touristy thing to do in Boston? Visiting the Boston Harbour Waterfront, of course. For those of you who might not know, the Boston Waterfront is basically a series of walkways right in front of the Boston Harbour. That means hotel rooms with water views, open-air bars to drink in while you hear the sound of the waves, and restaurants which serve the very fresh catch of the day. It also means that you can walk to the waterfront from your vacation rental, or you could just walk along the streets of the Financial District since you’re going to be living in the heart of the city! So, if you are planning a trip to Boston waterfront, then this is a specially curated list of some of the best Airbnb vacation rentals in and near Boston Waterfront, Massachusetts. Scroll down below to check them out.
You will be sold once you hear about the history of this place. I mean, who doesn’t want to live in a pre-Civil War loft? This property is done up so beautifully–so modern yet so rustic. If you’re planning a really fun getaway weekend with your better half, then I will definitely suggest this warm and cozy one-bedroom apartment. And it’s walking distance to pretty much everything, which makes it even better.
