We are excited to announce that FutureM 2016 is located at the
Innovation and Design Building. The Innovation and Design Building
is the place where Boston's smart businesses work. Meeting the
workspace needs of the individuals and companies that are fueling
today's economy with its open, flexible floor plans, high ceilings,
and natural light-filled spaces, the Innovation and Design Building
is like no other property in Boston.
The Innovation and Design Building is located in the Boston
Marine Industrial Park (BMIP), part of the Seaport's Innovation
District nestled between downtown and South Boston. The BMIP is
home to over 200 businesses and 3,000 employees. The Innovation and
Design Building is conveniently located along the MBTA Silver Line
route, just minutes from South Station, and is within walking
distance of the residential neighborhoods of the Seaport and South
Boston, as well as area amenities and cultural institutions.
More than just "that dirty water," the Charles River, which
stretches across 23 miles of Boston, is a cultural landmark. Start
your day with a scenic run along the Charles River Esplanade. Then
stretch out on one of the wooden docks, gaze at the river, and
think deep thoughts.
The Boston Common is the oldest public park in the country, and
a favorite spot for both visitors and native Bostonians. Grab a cup
of coffee at the Thinking Cup or the Boston Common Coffee Company,
and take a stroll. We promise we won't let it rain.
MIT is well-known for regularly producing some of the most
innovative inventions in the world. The MIT Museum "explores invention, ideas, and innovation" - and we know
you're all about that. Visit the museum, walk around campus,
and soak up rays of technology.
Does "sweet potato fries" get you all excited? Good. You can
keep reading. You don't have to be a hipster to appreciate Kendall
Square's funkiest diner. Enjoy a tasty brunch at The Friendly
Toast, and follow it up with a movie at the nearby Kendall Square
Just a short walk from the BCEC, the Institute of Contemporary
Art is the first new art museum to be built in Boston in a century.
The museum overlooks the Boston Harbor, and Logan Airport across
the way - and it's worth visiting just to eat lunch in the cafe and
gaze at boats. The award-winning building was modeled after nearby
waterfront gantry cranes, and you could argue that the ICA's
architecture rivals the art inside.
The Omni Parker House, located in the heart of downtown Boston,
is one of America's oldest luxury hotels. And for you believers,
it's also one of the most haunted spots in the country. (Ooh!) In
spite of the ghosts, you'll have a wonderful time eating lunch at
the Parker's Restaurant, where you'll enjoy a mix of nostalgic and
Beacon Hill is one of Boston's smallest (and most beautiful)
historic neighborhoods. Well-known for its Federal-style rowhouses,
Beacon Hill oozes history. Stroll by the Massachusetts State House,
and then enjoy a quiet dinner at one of this neighborhood's many
The North End is Boston's oldest residential community - and it
certainly feels well-established. The area is dominated by
Italian-Americans, and boasts some of the best restaurants in the
city. Have a sweet tooth? Help us answer the age-old question: are
the cannolis better at Mike's Pastry or Modern Pastry?
Sometimes you want to go where everybody
knows your name. Make your way down to Beacon Street for some
drinks, food, and live entertainment at Boston's iconic Cheers.
Whether you obsessed over Sam and Diane or were a casual fan,
Cheers is a great spot to check out.
Food trucks are exploding on Boston's food scene. Make your way
to South Station (just blocks from Seaport and the Financial
District) and grab a bite at one of the many food trucks parked in
Dewey Square. The options are endless, and you'll no doubt walk
away feeling satisfied.
