There is no place better than Boston, Massachusetts and the surrounding communities in the springtime. The Apple and Cherry Blossom Trees are bursting with color, the trees are budding, and the smell of salt air almost draws us all to the beach.
Revere has many spring events to attend such as the Kite Festival and the Annual Sand Sculpting Festival to celebrate on beautiful Revere Beach, but neighboring Boston also has some amazing places to visit and attractions as well. Here are five places you won’t want to miss during your trip to the Revere and Boston area.
Boston Public Garden and Swan Boats
America’s First Public Garden is the perfect place to start your day of touring Beantown. Boston Public Garden is a Frederick Law Olmsted-designed park, famous for its Swan Boats and over 600 varieties of trees. The flower displays are always changing and there are plenty of quiet places to lay down a blanket and enjoy a picnic with family or read a book.
Be sure to take a ride on a foot-powered swan boat on the pond in the Gardens. This 15-minute ride will be the highlight of your day as you get beautiful views of the surrounding architecture and views of Boston.
If you’re a Robert McCloskey fan don’t forget to visit the Make Way For Duckings sculptures, especially entertaining when they’re dressed for New England sports team playoffs.
Take in a Sox Game at Fenway Park
A visit to Boston is not complete without visiting the hallowed home of the Boston Red Sox since 1912 – Fenway Park. Take in a game or a tour of the park where you can visit Pesky’s Pole, visit the seat that was hit during the longest home run of famous Sox slugger Ted Williams or climb the stairs to the 37-foot tall left-field wall known as the Green Monster, the most distinctive feature of this classic baseball park.
Take a Duck Boat Tour
Want to see Boston in a uniquely different way?
Try a Duck Boat Tour in a W.W.II style amphibious landing vehicle, which will take you over land and water to view major historical locations and attractions around Boston. Book a group tour or individual ride through Boston and the splashdown in the Charles River.
Your tour will include cruising by all the places that make Boston the birthplace of freedom and a city of firsts. You will see from the golden-domed State House to the Boston Common, the historic North End, the famous Newbury Street, Quincy Market, the Prudential Tower, and more.
“Quack” your way to an informative and fun tour around Boston. Start your Duck Tour at one of three locations: Museum of Science, Prudential Center, or the New England Aquarium.
Boston Harbor Island State Park
Just offshore in Boston Harbor are 34 small islands. One of the most popular to explore is George’s Island which is home to the Civil War-era Fort Warren.
Visitors can spend the day exploring 12 of these islands, tour lighthouses, tour historical forts, as well as enjoy a ferry tour of the harbor area.
Visit the North End
Walk along the cobblestone streets of Boston’s Oldest Neighborhood. The famous Italian North End is known for its wonderful restaurants and historical sites. While you enjoy an authentic Italian meal or a dessert from Mike’s Pastry, take a walk by Paul Revere’s house and the Old North Church while you’re in the neighborhood.
