The Underground at Ink Block is the city’s latest triumphant effort to repurpose a forgotten space, this one tucked underneath a knotty snarl of South End/South Boston overpasses. The eight-acre park includes bike paths, boardwalks, a dog park and more than 150,000 square feet of mural work by artists from Boston, Los Angeles, New York and Puerto Rico. With a full events calendar, there’s no bad time to visit this unique space, from a graffiti festival to fitness classes and a rotating night market with a pop-up bar.
Oftentimes, we city-dwellers can get stuck in a rut visiting only our favorite bars and restaurants, and partaking in our usual go-to activities. There’s nothing wrong with this lifestyle, but it can sometimes start to feel mundane—and when that happens, you’ll need to add a little excitement to a night out or your weekend. From special, off-menu items to a half-million-dollar outdoor art gallery and more—this list will make you rethink just how well you know the best of what Boston has to offer.
