Revel in the classic New England seaside atmosphere in Neponset-Port Norfolk.
A stroll down the hilly lanes brings you past weathered historic buildings, many divided into apartments. Residential blocks take up most of the neighborhood; if you want to be near the action, look for homes
near the collection of businesses that cluster at the intersection of Adams Street and Gallivan Boulevard.
Although downtown Boston
lies just seven miles north, Neponset-Port Norfolk residents enjoy numerous activities close to home. Tenean Beach comes to life in the summer with swimmers and sunbathers, and the Fiddlehead Theatre Company entertains locals with musicals year-round. Go for a run on the waterfront
Neponset Trail, or stop by Hemenway Park for the playground and basketball courts.
At mealtime, locals know to find the neighborhood's best clam chowder and pulled pork sandwiches at the Lambert's Rainbow Fruit deli counter. For artisan pizza, try the Bocca or the Lucca at Molinari's.
