1. Duck Tours

The famous Boston Duck Tours are a relaxing and entertaining way to see the highlights of the Freedom Trail if you don’t feel like walking. Your tour guide and operator will point out key historical locations as you roll through the streets of Boston in a renovated World War II vehicle. These custom-made vessels can travel on both land and water. Towards the end of the 80-minute tour - surprise - the vessel rolls down a ramp and into the Charles River. Some guides will even allow passengers to pilot the vehicle while it’s on water.

 

 

 

2. Prudential Building

They say you haven’t seen Boston until you’ve seen it from the top of the Prudential Building. For a modest fee, you can take the elevator to the 50th floor and get a 360-degree view of the city from the Skywalk. If you can, time your trip during a Red Sox game and bring binoculars to watch the action. Fun!

 

 

 

 

 

3. Quincy Market & Fanueil Hall

A central spot for both history and shopping, the Quincy Market area has something for everyone.

Surrounding these locations are two large building which house stores of all kinds. In the center you’ll find Quincy Market itself, crowded with eateries that offer foods from around the globe. Outside are more vendors, extra seating, and street performers. This is a great place to take the family for an afternoon.

 

 

 

4. Simons Imax Theatre

Across the street from the New England Aquarium is the Simons Imax Theatre. The Imax film format involved special cameras and film. The screen is a dizzying six stories high and the seating steep but comfortable. Many films presented here focus on sea life, and some are even 3D. If you’ve never been to an Imax film, prepare yourself for an unforgettable experience.

 

 

 

5. New England Aquarium

Like any aquarium, NEAQ has tank after tank of aquatic life, both salt- and freshwater. On you first visit, though, that won’t be what you notice first. As you walk into this world-class aquarium, one of the world’s largest salt-water tanks looms before you. This 200,000 gallon monster holds sharks, sea turtles, and thousands of smaller fish. A ramp spirals upward around the tank. The top is open; ask for a schedule so you don’t miss the daily sea turtle feeding.

 

 

6. Boston Museum of Science

This massive museum features fascinating exhibitions covering all areas of science. Don’t miss the Theater of Electricity’s daily show in which actual lightening is created indoors. There is also an Imax theater, and a planetarium with astronomy presentations and laser light shows.
