“Stroll along the Waterfront”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

It is a pleasant walk along the Boston waterfront and it’s great to see how it has been transformed. There are many places to sit and people watch and it’s a nice alternative from the busy city streets. If you have time, you can walk from the aquarium all the way around to the USS Constitution.

“What a view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013

The waterfront is beautiful. You can't miss it with all the walking you will be doing. What a great place to just sit and watch the sun go down!

“Beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013

Beautiful! A must if you go to Boston in the summer. Lots to do and see, lots of concessions. It was blazing hot the day we went and the cool harbour breeze was lovely!

“Lovely walkabout”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2013

First day in Boston and walked everywhere exploring. We just keep on going and found ourselves on this lovely waterfront. Beautiful harbour area, love the smells of the ocean air- enjoyed our wine and views.

Boston is such a walking city and often we found it was easier to walk than use the subway system where you might have to change to multiple lines to get somewhere.

“Codzilla”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2013

The waterfront is lovely with very nice restaurants. Go on Codzilla - a 40 minute thrilling boat trip. You WILL get wet through so be prepared.
