“The Boston Harbor Waterfront.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2012

It is lively with activities such as dinner cruises, historical sites, the TD North Pavillion, Jets flying overhead from Logan Airport and the USS Consitution close to Bunker Hill. It is especially awesome when the Tall Ships arrive in Boston. The ship tours are amazing.

“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”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2012

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.
