Beautiful ! we went in passing through Boston Harbour Hotel (which is awesome!). There were many large yachts parked, wow! There was a wedding on site too. We walked along the waterfront.

“Great!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2013

Great place to walk and clear your mind. Take a stroll past the boats and the excellent restaurants. The city has done a great job with the waterfront trail and it provides a great tour of the city! Its absolutely gorgeous scenery.

“Head space”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2013 via mobile

A walk around the harbour is a great way to "blow off the cobwebs"! The peace and quiet, and on a crisp clear day the views are amazing. I generally potter around Longwharf, then stroll down into the North End for coffee.

“Well worth the time to walk around....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2013

I walked a large part of the waterfront area as it was the quickest way to get from my hotel to the North End and it proved to be a great walking tour of the city. I was very impressed with the improvements that have been made. Being a landscape architect, I was very interersted as to how they handled a lot of the public spaces that are lined along the waterfront.

“Great for a short walk and a sit down”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2013

When your legs get weary on the freedom trail, head for the waterfront, sit in the sun and watch the people, boats and planes....
