Our hotel near the Boston Waterfront
Bostonians have adopted the Standell’s 1966 hit “Dirty Water” as something of an anthem — “I love that dirty water/Boston you’re my home!”— making it the sing-along epilogue to Red Sox & Bruins’ victories. Musical modesty aside, in recent years Boston has spent billions cleaning up the Charles River and Boston Harbor, resulting in some of the cleanest urban beaches in America. This beautification has benefited many the city’s top attractions that can be found along the waterfront, such as:
- USS Constitution (“Old Ironsides”)
- New England Aquarium
- Boston Children’s Museum
- Institute of Contemporary Art
- Boston Tea Party Ships and Museum
We’d be remiss if we didn’t point out the nearly 40 miles of the Boston Harborwalk, best explored on one of our PUBLIC bikes. 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.
