The tiny hidden gem of Bay Village offers quaint charm and quiet streets. Not a well-known Boston neighborhood, Bay Village is nestled south of Beacon Hill and Boston Common and was built during the 1820s by craftsmen who were working on the larger, upscale Beacon Hill neighborhood. As a result, Bay Village is a smaller version of Boston’s most famous neighborhood.
Adjacent to the Theater District, Bay Village is close to several fine restaurants, shops, and theaters, including the Boston Opera House and Citi Performing Arts Center. Boston Common, America’s first park (developed in 1634), features a spray pad in summer and an ice rink in winter. Bay Village is a diverse community with a great mix of residents, ranging from college students to families.
