Located just beyond East Boston is the small, 1.6 mile town of Winthrop. This picturesque Oceanside community sits on the tip of a peninsula, connected to Boston proper by a bridge over Belle Isle Marsh Reservation and to Revere by a narrow isthmus. As one of the oldest communities in the United States, Winthrop offers quaint New England charm and an abundance of historical landmarks that make this welcoming residential neighborhood a draw for people who want unparalleled views of Boston Harbor and the city skyline.
People take full advantage of the waterfront in Winthrop. Shops, parks, marinas and miles of lovely beaches form the perimeter of Winthrop. Walking, jogging, picnicking, and fishing are just some of the many activities you can find here. Yacht clubs, ferry rides, walking trails and a golf course add to Winthrop’s endless fun.
Connecting back to bustling downtown is a breeze. An abundance of public transportation and highways like Route 145 and Route 713 make the commute easy, and new ferry services have been added in recent years to connect residents to North and South Shore communities. For the person dreaming of a neighborhood with a beachy, getaway feel, Winthrop provides just that without having to sacrifice access to all the nearby urban amenities.
