Named one of the 25 best zip codes in Massachusetts by the Boston Globe in 2008, Mission Hill is home to almost 20,000 people. Architecturally, there is a combination of freestanding houses built by early wealthy landowners, blocks of traditional brick row houses, and triple deckers. As a very eclectic neighborhood, Mission Hill is home to many shops and restaurants, as well as parks and other outdoor areas. Additionally, the nearby Longwood Medical Center is renowned for its excellence and many of its medical professionals and other personnel live in the area.
No more stressful commutes in and out of the city, and public transportation is in walking distance in almost every direction. Catch a ballgame at Fenway Park, a nice dinner at Orinoco or the Capital Grille or peruse all that the Museum of Fine Arts has to offer. Take advantage of the on site green space or walk the Riverway at your leisure.
