Looking to have a full day or even an entire weekend of fun on the Boston waterfront? Not only home to Boston Electric Boats, but to countless other captivating attractions. From museums to art galleries and extraordinary restaurants, your day by our boats and exploring the city is sure to be memorable.
Let’s talk about our top 5 favorite attractions in Boston:
1.) Boston Children’s Museum
Having more than 50,000 items to explore, one of our favorite family-friendly attractions is Boston Children’s Museum. In recent years, people have strayed away from the wholesome time of being present: To absorb, understand, and ask questions about everything around you. The Boston’s Children Museum, internationally recognized, will help you do just that. The museum is a leading attraction for education programs in science, culture, health and fitness, math, literacy, and the arts, and introduces fascination in the most fun way possible.
What better way to congratulate and commend your hard-working children for heading back to school than to book a boat ride and to visit Boston’s Children Museum. Keep them engaged and interested in learning by bringing them on the water and visiting the Boston Children’s Museum.
2.) The Lawn on D
The Lawn on D is one of the Waterfront District’s most dynamic outdoor spaces, offering unique entertainment, lawn games, and concessions! The grassy, open space allows you to enjoy seasonal live music with friends and family while playing some of your favorite lawn games like ping pong, bocce, Jenga, and corn hole. The Lawn on D also has LED glowing swings and an inflatable maze that make this innovative, modern space a great spot for the perfect Instagram photo. The Lawn On D is unlike any other Boston destination and is absolutely worth checking out after a cruise on the harbor!
3.) The Waterfront Restaurants
It is no secret that Boston is home to some of the freshest and most appetizing seafood. The Boston Waterfront has countless food options that you can’t go wrong with!
