You may hear people call it “The Dot,” but in reality Dorchester is quite large—stretching from just south of downtown Boston all the way down to Quincy, this neighborhood incorporates a diverse urban landscape. The oldest house in Boston can be found here, as well as frequent new developments all over the neighborhood, including modern apartment communities. Dorchester is rich with intellectual capital, with major landmarks including the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and a branch campus for the University of Massachusetts.

The expansive waterfront area is beautiful, and residents can take it all in while strolling through the Neponset River Reservation. And of course, there’s no shortage of dining, shopping, and entertainment, much of it being clustered along Dorchester Avenue near the intersection with Adams Street.
