Boston Chinatown Tours and Activities
Boston’s Chinatown, in the heart of downtown, is the last remaining Chinese area in New England and is home to 70% of the city’s Chinese inhabitants. As an area it is known for its rich history, culture, and great food. The large gate with two protective foo lions, which signals the entrance, has become an icon for the neighborhood.
Once inside, the best way to see it is to simply explore the small shops and winding streets, stopping for bites of authentic Chinese food along the way. Check the timing and you may run into one of the many traditional festivals that run here throughout the year.
Boston’s Chinatown is the third largest in the United States, following New York and San Francisco. With many community organizations and maintained traditions, it is considered to be the center of Asian American life in Boston.
