New England Trip Itineraries

Boston Harbor Getaway

Destination(s): Boston

This tour itinerary explores a different side of Boston and one of the most historic parts of the city. The 1700s ushered in the wealth of the shipping industry connecting Boston to the controversial triangle trade exchanging sugar cane for rum, among other things. At one point, Long Wharf was the longest wharf in the world and helped make John Hancock, Peter Fanieul and many others, the wealthiest men in the new world. On this itinerary, enjoy a two night stay on Long Wharf at the Marriott while exploring the history, art and culture of the harbor area that encircles historic Boston. Take a cruise on the harbor to see the whales migrating, then come ashore to the Harbor Walk to visit the aquarium and sample the seafood. Over the weekend, stop in at a Boston pub for a pint of ale, visit the Contemporary Art Museum, relax in Columbus Park and many other cultural experiences. While the city of Boston offers a wealth of history, art and culture, a simple weekend to enjoy the harbor sites can be just as exciting and memorable. read more about Boston Harbor Getaway
