This was quite a trip - relaxing boat ride out to the island followed by several hours touring the fort. You do need to be careful walking inside the fort as many places are quite dark so a small compact fashlight is recommended. There is...More
We took the ferry and visited Georges Island. It was a beautiful August day, and both the boat ride and the time on the islands was a welcome change from the urban hustle and bustle of Boston. We traveled with four kids - ages 5...More

We went for the Free Ferry day and had a great time. As a couple, 2 hours was perfect for us to leisurely stroll around the whole island. As a family, you could probably spend a day here with a picnic lunch. The fort was...More
What a gem of a locations, right in Boston Harbor. I highly recommend this day trip. We had a day of beautiful weather so walking the entire island was a breeze. There's a small cafe with limited choices but it's satisfactory. If you bring your...More
