South Boston is a great neighborhood with many nice stores and restaurants. It also has an incredible boardwalk and beach down at Dorchester Bay - hotdogs from Sullivans at Castle Island is a regular summer event for many folk. South Boston attracts a varied demographic - families, young professionals working downtown, some students but there still remain some residents whose family has lived in "Southie" for generations. As always, there are social issues that come with living in an urban environment. There is some crime in South Boston. Your best resource for that information is your local police but there are many on-line resources also. "Safe" is a very personal opinion - what one person considers to be safe may be quite different for another. It is always a good idea to spend time in the neighborhood at different times of the day to see what is going on. Don't be afraid to strike up a conversation with some of the residents to hear what they have to say.
