Safety at Night in Boston

Jump to last reply

Hi. I thought I was done with my 4 day plan for Boston before beginning our road trip, however I have been reading several sites that indicate that Boston is less then safe in the evening. We like to walk & sometimes enjoy a late supper, etc. I have made reservations in September for the Radisson Hotel, 200 Stuart Street.

Here's some possible scenarios, 1) Walk from the hotel down Tremont street to the Faneuil Hall area and returning to the hotel after a late supper. 2) Walk from hotel to the Copley Square area, returning in the evening. 3) How about the waterfront area just across the Seaport Avenue Bridge into South Boston. 4) Lastly, the area north of Stuart Street such as Charles Street between the Public Park and Boston Common, Beacon Street, and up & down Arlington Street.

I was looking for casual restaurants for supper and maybe a night cap before retiring for the evening and started coming across the safety issue on several sites. We realize a person must be always alert to their surroundings, particularly, in large cities. However it would help some of my planning if I had an idea about safety in areas where some recommended restaurants are located.

Comments are welcome. Thank you!
