One of the U.S.’s most iconic cities, Boston is a metropolitan that offers exciting new restaurants, historical monuments, cultural activities, and a local flair. While so many options on what to do, it’s easy to forget that Boston is nestled right on the Massachusetts Bay, opening up a whole new veranda of experiences. When you’re ready to move from the streets to the sea, check out our list of top things to do on Boston’s waterfront.
Feel Mighty on an Iconic Duck Tour
If you’ve ever heard the quacking delight of a duck tour go by, you know the potential for fun it offers. When you join a Boston Duck Tour, you’ll embark on a historical adventure riding in a W.W.II style amphibious landing vehicle, where you’ll get a nice background of Boston’s top sites by land and sea. Our favorite part begins when your “conDUCKtor” takes a dramatic launch into the sea to give you a front-row view of Boston’s beautiful skyline from the Charles River.
Catch a Glimpse of Marine Life
One of Boston’s undiscovered gems has to be the Boston Whale Watching Cruise. Ranging anywhere from three to five hours long, this extensive cruise takes you on a marine journey where you’ll see whales, pods of dolphins, and other marine life that like to frolic in the waters of the Massachusetts Bay. Along the way, you’ll learn about the historic lighthouses and the scenic Boston Harbor Islands that create the beautiful backdrop of Boston Harbor.
Cruisin’ Your Way Into the Harbor
Apart from a whale watching, Boston offers a variety of cruises that match your travel mood. Searching for something romantic? Hop on a Sunset Cocktail Cruise and enjoy a glass of wine while taking in the glittering city at dusk. Want to get down to the historic nitty gritty? Check out the ship that started it all–the U.S. Navy that is–on the USS Constitution Cruise. View all your cruising possibilities here.
