Boston Harbor and the Charles River offer much in the way of events, attractions, and recreation. One of the biggest events is the annual July 4th Boston Fireworks & Pops Concert with a star-studded guest line-up headlined by Queen Latifah this year, that includes Arlo Guthrie commemorating the 50th anniversary of Woodstock, local teen vocalist, Amanda Mena, and more exciting performers. Boston’s multi-day Harborfest is the biggest Independence Day celebration in the nation. The spectacular fireworks display lights up the night sky for half million spectators! Another major event is St Patrick’s Day, usually celebrated with the famous Parade in South Boston. Unfortunately, the 2021 Parade had to be canceled this year as well, due to covid-19 health concerns. Dropkick Murphys, a Celtic punk rock group is expected to perform at the House of Blues near Fenway Park this year and also performing at Encore Boston Harbor Hotel & Casino and Big Night Live.
A sightseeing cruise around the Harbor to live traditional Irish music, Guinness beer, and a great view of the scenic Boston skyline is a fabulous way to enjoy St Paddy’s Day. So is a pub crawl of Boston’s Irish pubs along the historical Freedom Trail; The Beantown Pub in Boston Common, The Black Rose, and Durty Nelly’s are a few notable pubs on the Trail. There are literally 100s of Irish bars in Boston; with one of the highest Irish populations (about 20%) in the country, that is not surprising. Some other notable Irish pubs are Ned Devine’s Irish Pub in Faneuil Marketplace, Flann O’Brien’s Pub, J.J. Foley’s Café, Lansdowne Pub near Fenway Park, Lir Irish sports bar in Back Bay, Mr Dooley’s Boston Tavern, The Bebop—Music Pub, and L Street Tavern. The Historic Pub Crawl along the Freedom Trail is a guided tour combining history with beer facts.
The Freedom Trail of Boston is a 2.5-mile pedestrian trail to link important local landmarks and museums through downtown, meandering past 16 historically significant sites between Boston Common to the Bunker Hill Monument in Charlestown. The Freedom Trail was the idea of journalist William Schofield in 1951 and implemented by mayor, John Hynes. Certain of the historical attractions require admission fees. Boston Common, dating to 1634, the oldest city park in US, is a centrally located 50-acre public park in downtown Boston. The park was declared a Boston Landmark in 1977. Boston Common is very popular in the summer with events and attractions drawing visitors and locals. The park is very scenic for photography, featuring a lake, and wide pathways that are great for strolling year-round, and an ice-skating rink in winter.
Boston Harbor is a natural harbor and estuary of Massachusetts Bay in the western extremity, sheltered from the Bay and the open Atlantic Ocean by the Winthrop Peninsula and Deer Island. Site of the infamous “Boston Tea Party,” the harbor was a major commerce center in 1660. All imports coming to the greater Boston area would come through Boston Harbor, which led to pollution of the harbor, to the point people were warned not to swim in its waters. Attempts were made over the decades to clean up the water, but none with “teeth” until the late 1980s when a Federal lawsuit resulted in a court-ordered clean-up. Currently the quality of Boston Harbor and the Charles River has seen considerable improvement and went from being one of the nation’s “filthiest” harbors to one of the cleanest, but Boston must remain vigilant to keep it safe for fishing, swimming, and other recreational activities. The Boston Harborwalk is a nearly continuous 43-mile park along Boston’s shoreline that connects visitors and residents of waterfront neighborhoods with the Harbor and 7 beaches, 40+ parks, 12 museums, and 100s of restaurants, bars, and stores.
Boston’s Museum of Fine Arts, located near Fenway Park, is described as “one of the most comprehensive art museums in the world,” with nearly 450,000 works of art—modern to ancient. Collections feature cultures from around the world in multi-mediums, decorative items, sculptures, paintings, and much more. Nearby is Fenway Park stadium located in the heart of Boston near Kenmore Square, a densely populated neighborhood. Originally built in 1912 as home field for the Boston Red Sox and rebuilt in 1934, Fenway Park is the oldest active ballpark in Major League Baseball but cannot be expanded to seat 40,000 spectators because of its urban location. Fenway was added to the National Register of Historical Places in 2012, its centennial year. Iconic Fenway Park is one of the most famous in the world.
The Museum of Science is a combination of science museum with over 700 interactive exhibits and an indoor zoo, home to over 100 rescued/rehabilitated animals. The museum is located on the Science Park that spans the Charles River. Opened in 1951, it is the first all-encompassing science museum in America. The Museum features the Charles Hayden Planetarium, Mugar Omni Theatre with domed IMAX screen, Theatre of Electricity, dinosaurs, butterfly gardens, and so much more. The New England Aquarium is a primary attraction, drawing over 1.3million visitors annually. The main feature is the 200,000-gal. cylindrical concrete ocean tank that opened in 1970 and was the largest of the world at that time. Refurbished in 2013, the Giant Ocean Tank simulates a Caribbean coral reef, open at the top and surrounded by a spiral walkway, with 52 viewing windows capable of providing every viewing angle of the reef. A 150,000-gal. penguin exhibit is at the bottom and can be viewed from the spiral walkway and from surrounding elevated viewing areas. Four levels of smaller exhibits surround the atrium.
Boston Common, dating to 1634 is the oldest city park in the US and was designated a Boston Landmark in 1977. This centrally located 50-acre public park in downtown Boston is extremely popular in the summer, with events and attractions, and wide scenic pathways that are great for strolling year-round. In winter, the park features an ice-skating rink. Boston Public Garden, established in 1837, two centuries after Boston Common, is the first botanical garden in America and is also located in downtown Boston. Designed in a Victorian-era style for strolling and enjoyment of the “gardener’s art”—a landscape of beautiful and unusual plantings, a lagoon with swan boats, monuments, and fountains. The Gardens are a popular venue for weddings. Must see the famous bronze duckling sculpture by Nancy Schoen, based on the kids’ book, “Make Way for Ducklings.” Faneuil Hall Marketplace & Quincy Market, along with the North and South Markets, offers visitors and residents an unmatched urban marketplace experience of shops, restaurants & bars, eateries, and more, set around a cobblestone promenade filled with local entertainment. Built by wealthy merchant, Peter Faneuil in 1742, as a gift to the city of Boston, Faneuil Hall was known as the “Cradle of Liberty” for the 1764 Sugar Act protest, that coined the slogan, “No Taxation Without Representation!” and powerful orators like Samuel Adams, George Washington and others, dubbed the “Sons of Liberty.”
Faneuil Hall was a major business center throughout the 19th century but deteriorated in the mid-1900s. Rescued from demolition by developer Jim Rouse and team, the 1976 renovation became the model for other urban renewal projects across America and abroad. Today this shopping and dining mecca is a premier destination attracting 18million visitors annually.
Boston Harbor Islands National and State Park consists of 34 islands and peninsulas and is an “urban oasis” located just minutes from Boston’s City Center Ferry.
