Nice place to walk along the water, looking at boats and people watching. Interesting place to see the sun setting behind you as you look at the water, especially when your from the west coast. Also fun to watch the planes come in to land in the distance.

Boston Harbor is very active! So many beautiful and interesting boats coming and going. You can walk miles right along the water.

Plus being right by the water was... More

I loved sitting at Boston's waterfront Marina. I love the sea and the setting just takes me away from all my worries. I sat, feet dangling over the side of the dock, watching the sunrise. The scenery was just incredible and I loved watching the ferries and sailboats go in and out of the harbor on this most beautiful day.... More

The waterfront is a wonderful place to stroll and enjoy the scenery. There are a lot of options for tour and sailing. Primarily you can just seat and relax and maybe enjoy a cocktail.

The entire city of Boston is just gorgeous. From the old structures to the new, its like jumping back in time, but still being up to par. Its one of my favorite cities in the United States. There is tons of activities to do, beautiful restaurants, and I especially love all the old english folklore and ghost stories. Not to... More

I was surprised at how many options for tours and sailings the Boston Harbor has available. If your planning a trip to Boston try to carve out a day or two to spend on the harbor, I know I have a long wish list for my next visit.

The Boston waterfront is a beautiful area to just stroll along enjoying the views. We decided to take the MBTA Water Shuttle on a warm afternoon for a trip on the harbor as well as a great way to get across the harbor to see the USS Constitution. The fare was only $3. for adults, less for Seniors.
