Arts & Entertainment in Fort Point Channel & Seaport District
Boston’s spirit of creativity and innovation flourishes today in the Seaport Innovation District neighborhood with a healthy artists’ community and several unique attractions.
The historic Fort Point Channel area has long been a haven for the region’s creative class. Today there are hundreds of artists who live and work in the area, and every October they celebrate their community by inviting the visitors and patrons into their studios during the well-attended Fort Point Artists Open Studios event.
In addition to the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center—which is New England’s largest convention center and which hosts the area’s largest consumer-related events—the Seaport District is home to some of the region’s best museums and attractions, including the Institute of Contemporary Art, the Boston Children’s Museum, the Boston Harborwalk, the Black Falcon Cruise Ship Terminal, Blue Hills Bank Pavilion, and the Boston Tea Party Ships and Museum.
