A drive through Roxbury is both a history lesson and a tour of a modern urban neighborhood. One of the oldest neighborhoods in Boston, Roxbury has long thrived on its proximity to the downtown area, while retaining its family-friendly neighborhood qualities. Home to a great number of parks, schools and churches, this neighborhood has been undergoing a renaissance with a number of growing ethnic shops and eateries. The Roxbury Center for the Arts, Culture, and Trade, which opened in 2005, celebrates the cultural richness of the community through the visual and performance arts.
