“Very interesting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012

From the USS Constituion to the destroyer Cassin Young, to the museum just yards away, the Navy Yard is a great place to spend half a day. Interesting to both kids and grown ups. Get there via Ferry from Long Wharf and you get great Boston views as well for a couple of bucks.

“Nice to walk around”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012

Though we didn't pay to go on any of the ships, the Navy Yard is a nice area to walk around and get a view of not only Boston skyline, but these gigantic (old and new) ships that are at the docks. I didn't notice benches to sit on, but there are grassy areas around where you could sit and sip on coffee or enjoy a packed lunch. Beautiful area.

“Fantastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2012

Walked to the Navy Yard to see the USS constitution.
Was pleasently surprised to discover the tour was free. Really good tour.
Would advise the tour as you can go to the lower decks, but no one actually checked to see if you were on the tour. Be brave and go for it, its worth it.
The only negative is that for the tour you have to sit outside to have an introduction. There is NO cover here at all.
You need photo ID and bags Xrayed to access the Navy Yard.

Worth a visit. Can be walked from downtown.
