“Good location to just watch people.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012

A typical waterfront area, with plenty of places to eat and drink, and tried many. Best at daytime for views.

“Gorgeous well developed waterfront area”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2012

Having been to Boston before, I found it wonderful to visit the waterfront area for the first time. It has been developed and is gorgeous to see and walk along. The yachting area/marina that is in behind Fanuheil Hall is beautiful, as are the sights and views across the bay. Worthy of a visit to sit and admire the view whilst enjoying an icecream!

Beautiful views, very relaxing and peaceful. Great idea for a stroll after having a bite to eat! Many nearby attractions to visit such as New England Aquarium and Faneuil Hall Marketplace.

“Three cheers for the Harborwalk”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2012

I LOVE the Harborwalk. It just doesn't get much better than strolling along the Harbor with million-dollar views -- all for free. Follow the Harborwalk for its three-mile stretch and drink it all in. Along the way, stop for a soda or a sit or an ice cream -- plenty of places along the way to indulge. The perfect way to appreciate Boston on a gorgeous day!
