What a lovely area to spend some free time. We actually visited the area last on our 14th wedding anniversary and so it was nice to go back as we pass year 28.

Lots of yachts to have a look at. Very pretty scenery. Lovely place to have a walk. Possible to get a boat to view the whole waterfront area - we did this and you get a running commentary of all the attractions as you go past.

the best way to appreciate the beauty of Boston Harbor is from the deck of one of the ferry boats- especially at night with all of the buildings lit up-

Great Vibe, a great place to take photos and see the harbor, fun to watch the boats come and go, lots of restaurants to choose from, as well as the aquarium. Would like to try the whale watching tour from the aquarium sometime, too!

There is a pretty much continuous path around the whole of the Boston waterfront, offering both great views and a good link route to many of the city's attractions. Highly recommended.
