Boston Harbor has always played an important role in the development, history and culture of the city. Today the waterfront is continuing an active and vital role in the fabric of Boston’s contemporary cultural life (scene). It’s a choice destination for visitors and locals alike, year round but especially in the warmer months.
The Boston HarborWalk, a continuous public walkway along the water's edge connects the City’s neighborhoods by linking recreational, cultural and historical attractions, as well as access to public transit, including water transportation. Stroll harbor side meandering among pocket parks, public art, restaurants and cafes - all sharing amazing vistas. Take a small detour and board a harbor cruise, whale watch, schooner sail or entertainment cruise. Another awesome aquatic experience awaits you at the New England Aquarium on Central Wharf.
