Features
Free, Family-friendly, Off the beaten path
Spread across the Boston Harbor like an elaborate diadem, the Boston Harbor Islands offer up the oldest lighthouse in the United States, a venerable Civil War-era fort, and miles of hiking trails. It’s all just a short ferry ride from Boston’s Long Wharf, and seasonal activities include 19th-century baseball games, interactive public art installations, and camping opportunities. Go out and get lost knowing you can see the bright lights in the distance.
