While walking through historical Boston, we really enjoyed seeing the wharf, the boats, the harbor and the nice shops along the way. Boston seems to have a magical aura and has something historically significant around every corner.

Great walking place as well as the water taxi service. Enjoy the view from the water for $12 and get some insight from the captains of the taxis.

While trying to find the departure point for a whale watching cruise, we "toured" along the Waterfront. I am handicapped and was able to use my scooter. The water seemed to be extra blue as did the sky. We watched the various and numerous boats...More

A lovely walk along the waterfront will lead you to the Boston Tea Party ship. It can be quite breezy, especially in the autumn.

we were very lucky to have such lovely weather in the high 80's in October, the waterfront is so great to walk along it goes on for miles and so much to see there are plenty of eateries as well to choose from.

We enjoy staying at a hotel in this area. The combination of big city and sea front make this a unique experience. Good connection to the T make it easy to navigate to other areas of the city.

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

as the others above said, no the waterfront is faces more toward where the bay becomes a river, the bridges are to low and the channel no deep enough, the ships are a decent distance away, and not within a convenient walk... More
