South Boston

    Why Visit: Walk along the Beach, check out Historic Castle Island, an take pictures while strolling along the Head Island Causeway.

    Why Live There: An oceanside town feel with access via bus lines and the Red Line at Andrew Square. Shops and restaurants throughout and more reasonable prices than downtown proper make this a viable destination for a short commute. Did I mention the BEACH?
