Visiting Boston

Welcome to Boston, Massachusetts!

Nestled alongside the Charles River, Boston University is located in the heart of Boston—steps away from Fenway Park, world-class museums, and a wide variety of historic enclaves and tourist attractions.

Easily accessible on foot or by public transportation, Boston’s distinct neighborhoods offer a range of culinary traditions from around the globe, fueling the city’s burgeoning reputation for award-winning restaurants and chefs. From popular food destinations such as the North End, Chinatown, or the South End to off-the-beaten-track gems in East Boston, Dorchester, Roxbury, or Brookline—not to mention the wide range of options across the river in Cambridge—you will discover much to tantalize the taste buds, along with the rich historical and cultural perspectives that bring cuisines to life.
