The Financial District, located in Boston, Massachusetts, is aptly named as it is home to plenty of banks, law firms, and other finance-related businesses. This area is largely commercial but aside from the banks and related businesses, the Financial District is also home to hotels, plenty of local restaurants and bars, chain restaurants, and coffee shops. There are very few residential buildings in the Financial District and those that are present are large apartment buildings. If you're visiting from out of town, the Financial District has easy access to the New England Aquarium and the Boston Tea Party Ships & Museum. 

Boston definitely experiences all four seasons including summer, fall, winter, and spring so you will want to check the daily forecast before heading out with your pup for a walk. The summers can be particularly humid while the winters are cold, wet, and can often see heavy snowfalls.

Located in the heart of downtown Boston, the Financial District is an urban neighborhood with few greenways or access to natural terrain. What this neighborhood lacks in natural terrain, it more than makes up for it with all of the safe sidewalks! You will want to watch out for your pup's sensitive paw pads during summer days, but the sidewalks will keep you safe from the downtown Boston traffic. Thankfully, though there are a few areas with some gradual inclines, the majority of the neighborhood is flat. This guarantees you and your furry friend are in for a nice, leisurely walk if that's what you are looking for!

The boundaries of the Financial District include State Street to the north, John Fitzgerald Surface Road and the Boston Harbor to the east, Summer Street and Essex Street to the south, and Otis Street to the west. Merrimac Street and Pearl Street are other major roadways in the Financial District.

For being in the heart of downtown Boston, the Financial District does have a handful of public greenways! The largest greenway in the area is the Norman B. Leventhal Park. Unfortunately, they encourage dog walkers to keep their pups off the grass to help maintain its manicured look. Your dog will also need to be leashed in this park. For our dog walkers, Norman B. Leventhal Park frequently hosts free workout classes, including yoga, during the summer months. 

Other greenways include Jenney Plaza, Winthrop Square, Lincoln Street Green, Leather District Park, and Dewey Square Parks. This neighborhood is also located immediately next to the Urban Arboretum, Wharf District Park, and Christopher Columbus Waterfront Park. Unfortunately, there are no off-leash dog parks located in or near the Financial District. The nearest dog park is roughly one mile away in Paul Revere Park and across the Charlestown Bridge. You may want to take a trip over to this area for some off-leash fun.
