I love Boston and the inner city architecture etc but this Harbor Walk somehow surprised me or shall I say it disappointed me. I wanted more. The walk is short and not along the water side. A couple of benches were dotted along the walk, but not nearly enough for all of those walkers who wanted to sit down. If... More

This is a quiet oasis just a short walk from the hustle and bustle of Maverick Square. It has beautifully landscaped grounds, a play ground, water spray area, and restrooms. It is a great place to sit and watch boat traffic. It is an excellent viewing spot when the USS Constitution does a turn around. The next turn-around is 10am... More

Throw on some good walking shoes and head to the harbor. Nice shops, kiosks and restaurants to hit on your way and throughout the harbor. Loads of boat excursions to take and beautiful to boot.

I enjoyed seeing the harbor, looking at boats, being at the water, and the small park. However, the HarborWalk is NOT a path along the harbor. There are signs that point to places where there are benches on the waterfront, but these places are not connected to each other. The largest portion of the HarborWalk seemed to be several tour...

To enjoy the breeze, cool weather, this is a perfect place to slow life. Kinda cool to look around this place, though not for those who are for action anytime

One thing the city of Boston has done right is attempt to make the waterfront an open area to everyone. This walkway is just great in the Spring, Summer and Fall. Provides great views of the harbor. Many interesting points along the way. A complete map with points of interest can be found on the web. Just type in Boston... More

There is almost nothing to see or to feel in the harbor walk in march. Everything is closed nad the water is very low. You can do better at this time of year. There are interesting restaurants around the wharf.

Great walk around the Boston waterfront, winding behind the Boston Harbor Hotel. Free concerns in summer behind the hotel. You can continue walking over to the Seaport area. Very clean, easy to walk.

This is one of Boston's greatest escapes. We parked by the MFA (Musuem of Fine Arts) and took the Emerald Necklace before crossing the interstate to hit the harbor walk. We did a loop in approximately 2 hours. The scenery is beautiful and the setting is peaceful, but watch out for the occasional rude cyclist flying down the path, which... More

I was in downtown Boston for a few hours waiting for my flight back to Toronto, and spent the majority of my time going around this beautiful walk. Lots of restaurants around and tours, both land and sea.
