Waterfront : Michelin's recommendations
The locus of Boston's long period of maritime prosperity, the waterfront fell on hard times in the 20C with the decline of the shipping business and the construction of a highway overpass that severed the waterfront from the rest of the city. Since the 1960s the area has rebounded with a flurry of hotel construction and adaptive re-use projects, as well as the establishment of the popular New England Aquarium.
