Boston city guide

Boston - South End & Chinatown (Chapter)

5th Edition Aug 2012

This is the South End & Chinatown chapter from Lonely Planet's Boston guidebook.

The Chinatown area teems with glitzy theaters, Chinese restaurants and the remnants of Boston's leather industry (now clubs and converted lofts). Nearby, the formerly rough-and-tumble South End has been reclaimed by artists and gays, who have created a vibrant dining and gallery scene.

  • dress to the nines and head out for a night on the town: comedy at the Wilbur Theatre, opera at the Shubert Theatre or music and dance at the Wang Theatre
  • maps
  • browse at the South End Open Market and SoWa Vintage Market followed by Sunday brunch on Tremont
  • transport
  • pack into Wally's Café for some old-time jazz and blues
  • restaurants & bars

Coverage includes: Neighborhood Top Five, Local Life, Getting There & Away, Sights, Eating, Drinking & Nightlife, Entertainment, Sleeping, Shopping and Sports & Activities.
