Tourism Recommendations

Duck Tours

Enjoy a classic Boston experience--a Boston Duck Tour in an W.W. II style amphibious landing vehicle. You’ll cruise by all the places that make Boston special from the golden-domed State House to Bunker Hill and the TD Banknorth Garden, Boston Common and Copley Square to the Rose Kennedy Greenway (former Big Dig), Government Center to fashionable Newbury Street, Quincy Market to the Prudential Tower, and more, all while your ConDUCKtor® narrates with lots of little-known facts and interesting insights about our unique and wonderful city. And the best part--you even "splashdown” right into the Charles River for a breathtaking view of the Boston and Cambridge skylines.

Duck Tours depart every 20 minutes from the Boston Aquarium (about a 15 minute walk from the Omni Parker House Hotel). Visit their website to purchase tickets. 

New England Aquarium

A global leader in ocean exploration and marine conservation, the New England Aquarium receives more than 1.3 million visitors a year and is a major public education resource for the region. You can get a discount by wrapping your visit up with Duck Tour--and skip the lines by buying your tickets online in advance. They also have an IMAX theater. Check out their latest exhibits and buy tickets on their website

Rose Kennedy Greenway

The Rose Kennedy Greenway is a 1.5 mile string of parks with art exhibits, carousels, and water features that connects the city to its bustling waterfront. This park was built on the site of the old elevated highway, buried underground during the infamous Big Dig project. You can walk all the way from the North End to China Town and hit up many tourist attraction along the way--the Aquarium, Harbor Tours, and Faneuil Hall. 

Trillium Brewery Beer Garden on the Rose Kennedy Greenway

Popular Fort Point neighborhood brewery, Trillium, just opened a beer garden on the Greenway. Don't be deterred by the long lines--or the corral. The line moves quickly and the fence is there because Boston is still a Puritan city when it comes to alcohol. A rotating line up of food trucks can often be found just outside the beer garden to satisfy any food cravings. Its a good time. 

Freedom Trail

This red-lined, 2.5 miles stroll past 16 historic Boston sites can be done self-guided with a map available online, or with a guided tour led by characters in historic dress. They even have a historic pub crawl! Find the map, educational resources, or book a tour on the Freedom Trail Foundation website

Faneuil Hall, Boston Public Market, Newbury Street, Prudential Mall

If you're up for some shopping, don't skip out on a few of Boston's best known opportunities. Faneuil Hall Marketplace, the historic site of Quincy Market, is now an outdoor mall with restaurants and street performers. If you're looking for locally produce, crafts, and scrumptious food, check out the new Boston Public Market (don't miss out on Taza Chocolate). And if you're looking for a more leisurely experience, take a stroll down Newbury Street and enjoy the boutiques, restaurants, and charming Trident Bookstore and Cafe. Just a block away, you'll find the Prudential Mall where Mario Batali's Boston Eataly is like Disney World for Italian fare. 

North End

If you're looking for Italian with more local flare, don't miss out on the North End, one of Boston's most old-world sections of the city. You'll find gelato, cannoli, a multitude of restaurants and Paul Revere's house. Compare cannoli's and pastry from Modern Pastry to Mike's Pastry and weigh in on the long-standing debate about which is better. The North End is at the top of the Rose Kennedy Greenway, opposite the north end of Faneuil Halland makes a nice start to an afternoon stroll. 

Beacon Hill

If you're looking for old world charm and more shopping, check out Beacon Hill, one of Boston's toniest neighborhoods where former Senator John Kerry resides.
