Our hotel near the Boston Waterfront
Bostonians have adopted the 1966 hit “Dirty Water” by the Standells as a kind of anthem — “I love that dirty water/Boston you’re my home!”— making it the sing-along epilogue to every win by the city’s baseball and hockey teams. Don't fall for the self-deprecation, though. Over the years Boston has spent billions cleaning up the Charles River and Boston Harbor, giving it some of the cleanest urban beaches in the country. So bottom line — check out some of these attractions along the beautiful Boston waterfront:
- USS Constitution (“Old Ironsides”)
- New England Aquarium
- Boston Children’s Museum
- Institute of Contemporary Art
- Boston Tea Party Ships and Museum
Or grab one of our free bikes and explore the nearly 40 miles of the Boston Harborwalk. There are also harbor cruises, whale-watching excursions, and ferry trips to several islands where you’ll find a historic lighthouse and fort, as well as hiking trails and beaches.
