Downtown Boston is the area most convenient for exploring Boston by foot and by public transportation. Since the completion of the Big Dig construction project in 2006, downtown has been revitalized with simplified pedestrian access to the historic districts, the waterfront, Boston Common, and the North End. The diversity of neighborhoods and attractions that can be explored in one day in downtown Boston is breathtaking.
