Waterfront, Boston

(4.7/5 based on 1,400+ reviews on the web)
Favored by both locals and visitors, Boston's Waterfront neighborhood is dotted with shops, street vendors, restaurants, cafes, and bars. Stroll along Boston Harborwalk's piers to enjoy the sea breeze and watch ships heading in and out of the harbor. Take a boat tour around the harbor (whale-watching tours are available, too), admire the views, and learn about Boston's maritime history. The airport is on across the harbor, making this a perfect place for plane spotting. Windy days on the waterfront can be chilly, so bring a sweater. Arrange to visit Waterfront and other attractions in Boston using our Boston trip builder.

  • The waterfront is forever changing, there's a lot of building going on in the area. New restaurants, Hotels and Shopping. 
  • there you can find peace and quietness. it is also close to the aquarium. so you can arrange to visit the 2 place in one day. very lovely place to spend sometime with family or friends. 
  • From tall ships to speed boats, you can check out just about any kind of water craft possible. Great way to spend up to an entire day.
