Attractions, Directions + Restaurants

Directions

Red Line Directions:
Arrive at South Station on the red line and then either walk through the beautiful Fort Point and Seaport neighborhoods or walk less by taking the Silver Line to Courthouse Station.

From Courthouse Station: 
Walk along Seaport Blvd, heading away from downtown and the financial district. Look for District Hall to the left before coming up on 100 Pier 4 Blvd. Our entrance is located to the right of the Ocean Prime Restaurant.

Parking

Parking can be scarce in the Seaport District. Some of our guests have had great luck with the ParkMe app by reserving a parking spot ahead of time. There are two parking lots adjacent to 100 Pier 4 with varying operation hours and rates. These lots will no longer be of service when the developments begin to build. Below is a list of nearby parking garages:

Seaport District Parking
Park Lane Garage
Park Me (Reserve a spot ahead of time)
