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.

Boston is full of great walking and this is just another walk. While it is a chance to see the boats of all shapes and sizes, it is not the best harbour side walk I have done. Instead take the Freedom trail walk which gives you a much richer Boston experience. Pause here in one of the hotels for a... More

The Harborwalk was a lot of fun and quite beautiful and scenic. I was in Boston for the day, and we decided to walk to pass some time, and I was glad we did it. Lots of ships, in one section you can see the Constitution. Very pretty walking paths. There's a section of ramps that go over the water... More
