The Michelle earns its Walk Score of 99 by being less than half a mile from dozens of restaurants, grocery stores, parks and shopping boutiques.
Centuries-old pubs, quaint Italian kitchens, and fresh seafood are all steps away in the historic North End. A ten minute walk down the Rose Kennedy Greenway brings you to Faneuil Hall and Quincy Market on the right. Hang a left at the Carousel instead, and you find yourself meandering beneath the vine-covered arbors of Waterfront Park with views of East Boston across the harbor. Fridays and Saturdays, Haymarket offers fresh local produce, found beneath a string of tents lining Blackstone Street and Hanover Street, while the nearby Boston Public Market operates indoors year-round. During the warmer months, vendors appear on the Greenway selling handmade ceramics, carved wood products, artwork and more.
Stroll down cobbled streets or follow the brick line of the Freedom Trail south to the Boston Common or north to the Bunker Hill Monument and the USS Constitution. Cross the street to TD Garden, home of the Celtics and Bruins, to watch a game or a concert.
Almost all of Boston is accessible by foot in under twenty minutes. For anything farther out, the Green and Orange lines are available at North Station and Haymarket, each three minutes from your front door, in addition to copious bus lines. Have a car? Parking is plentiful; the most popular options–the North End Garage, Government Center Garage, or Parcel 7 Garage–each lie a five minute walk away. For travel out of town, take the commuter rail, trains, or coach buses from South Station and Back Bay Station. Boston Logan Airport is just across the harbor, accessible by the Blue line or the ferry.
Whatever you’re looking for, the North End has it. The Michelle is nestled in the midst of it all to best take advantage of everything Boston has to offer.
