Waterfront Boston

Just Below the North End of Boston is the Waterfront - where Boston began! Be sure to visit the New England Aquarium with its 200,000 gallon ocean tank. It is a wonderful way to spend the afternoon, and a kids' favorite. For those a bit more adventurous you can take a whale watching tour. These tours are seasonal, and very popular, so plan ahead.

One of the jewels of the wharf area is the Rowes Wharf Complex. This marina complex offers luxury shopping, town-homes and offices. A large arch opens up the city to the water. Continue down and you will find the Children's Museum, Boston Tea Party Museum (under construction) and many restaurants and hotels. Stop and have an ice cream at the Milk Bottle outside the Children's museum. The 40 ft. landmark replica of an old milk bottle is tough to miss. Across the way is a small Fire Museum that has some great vintage Boston Fire Equipment.
