Comparing this island to my other excursions (Spectacle & George's) it pales in comparison. There is no food/drink (well, water fountains) on this island. Pretty sparse. There are Yurts to rent. When we were dropped off we were under the impression that the last and...More

Traveled to Peddock's via the Family Fun Day event, so able to go from Boston direct to Peddock's without having to stop at George's. Perfect to hike around the island or just kick back on an Adirondack chair and take in the fresh air and...More

The ferry to the island was $17 round trip. We stayed for 2 nights in tent section 5. This section was the best for tent camping. The others were not as good. Stay away from 6 as it is nearby the composting toilets. You should...More

We stayed in one of the yurts here. The first thing I would have done differently is to take a direct boat from Boston to Peddocks. We took a ferry to Georges Island and then we had to wait for 45 minutes for the ferry...More

Stayed overnight here in one of the new yurts in July 2013. The yurts are awesome. There's two sets of bunk beds with full size beds on the bottom. Each yurt has two picnic tables (one inside and one outside) and a grill. It's definitely...More

North End
Wandering around Boston’s North End can feel like
being transported to Europe. Stroll down Hanover and
Salem streets for the finest Italian restaurants,
bakeries, cafes, and a few boutique shops. Take part
in the big debate as to whether Modern Pastry or
Mike’s serves a better cannoli. Before your food coma
sets in, make sure to stop by historic Paul Revere’s
home, and follow the Freedom Trail to Old North Church
