Celebrating the 4th of July is as entwined in the culture of summertime in the U.S. as baseball, backyard barbecues and going to the beach. This year, why not make the day extra special and head to a city that has been celebrating the holiday ever since it came into existence? If fireworks aren’t enough for you, there are plenty of other Boston Attractions to help make this an Independence Day you won’t soon forget.
You’ve probably seen Beantown’s famous duck boats on television or in a movie but never had the chance to see them in person. You can remedy that problem and have a quacking good time by going on a Boston Duck Tour. Hop on one of the modified World War II landing crafts and enjoy the ride. This top Boston Attraction will take you by some of the top sites in the city including Faneuil Hall/Quincy Market, Bunker Hill, Battery Wharf and of course, the Charles River.
Another great way to see the city is on the Boston Segway Tour. You won’t have to worry about holiday traffic when you are zipping around Boston on this commonly-used means of urban transportation. The inner-workings of the streets in Boston are confusing – even for locals – so using a Segway to get around is a great way to avoid getting bogged down struggling to read a map instead of experiencing the city. The Boston Segway Tour might be one of the newer Boston Attractions, but it’s definitely here to stay.
You’ll definitely get some of the spirit of Independence Day with a trip to Boston Tall Ships. Step aboard the 125-foot Liberty Clipper and you’ll immediately be whisked back to the mid-1800s, when coastal schooners were more widely-used in America than anywhere else. Boston Tall Ships is a great way experience one of America’s most historically important bodies of water – Boston Harbor. (There was a pretty significant Tea Party there once…)
