We'll be spending New Year in Boston & we're looking forward to "First Night". I see that there's an option when buying buttons for a midnight harbour cruise of 1.5 hours to see the fireworks with a bar & music. Does anyone have any experience of this? Is it a restrained affair or likely to feel like a spring break party boat?
Should we just watch form the harbourside?
Being New Year's Eve we'd expect it to be lively but we'd welcome any local knowledge that might influence our decision.
