Explore the Cradle of Liberty easily and economically with a hop-on hop-off bus pass. The route includes several stops at popular attractions and landmarks, including the historic North End and Boston Tea Party Ships. Hop off at whichever appeals to you, then catch the next bus when you’re ready for another destination. You can also stay on the bus and enjoy a panoramic loop around the city.

Loved Harvard Square! Lots of great bars and restaurants, as well as Starbucks and Dunkin’ Donuts. Two entrances to the subway. Tons of local stores, and lots of places to buy Harvard merch. JP Licks is a great spot for ice cream!
