Lots going on here from the aquarium to walks along the waterfront, plus, of course, lots of development with places to eat and drink.

There are many shopping booths/tents along the waterfront, a nice part to sit and relax and many restaurants. Little Italy is 10 minutes walk from the waterfront. This is one of the must see places in Boston.

Great area with a variety of activities : take a boat tour of the harbor islands, visit the aquarium, or walk to nearby historic sites.

This is where we fell in love with Boston. The views here will last you a lifetime. Our summer adventure saw the water filled with a hundred vessels of all sizes.

What's not to love around the water. We walked around and had dinner at the No Name Restaurant. Learned how much has been done to the area in the past few years from our hop-on hop-off bus driver.

We took a whale watching tour and the boat was a Cat with properless drive. This was very cool as the whales could contect the boat hull without injury. Our boat became a big back scratcher, so funny will do this again.

The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with
historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through
one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston
Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling
statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the
pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where,
during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting
children and eager tourists through the pond. Have
