Baltimore’s nickname – Charm City – is well earned. This town’s charisma runs deep – from the tall ships floating in the Inner Harbour to the top-notch museums. It’s an East Coast slice of American history where you can visit Edgar Allan Poe’s grave, and tour the fort where America’s national anthem was penned. And for authentic Baltimorean neighbourhood experiences, nothing beats sipping pints in the pubs of Fells Point, cracking open steamy crabs in Canton’s seaside shacks and enjoying sweeping skyline views from the top of Federal Hill.

Boston
From 8:00 AM - 6:00 PM
Toting over 400 years of history, Boston is one of the oldest cities in America. Boston cruises allow you to see Revolution-era relics standing tall amid modern cityscapes, and homes where legendary patriots, politicians and poets once lived. Discover cobblestone charm in Beacon Hill and Paul Revere’s midnight route through the North End. Breathe in salty air along the Harborwalk and ride in a swan boat around Boston Public Garden. Whether it’s walking the Freedom Trail, kayaking on the Charles River, or living time-honored baseball traditions at Fenway Park, you’ll come to find Boston is the birthplace of New England adventure.

Time Travel

Walk the 2.5-mile, red-lined Freedom Trail past 16 historical sites. See the grave of John Hancock, old meetinghouses, famous churches, the home of Paul Revere, the site of the Boston Massacre, Quincy Market and the USS Constitution – Old Ironsides – the world’s oldest commissioned warship still floating today.
Insider tip
Take advantage of the Hubway bike share system – you can pick up a bike from over 160 stations, pedal around town and then return it to another station.

Two If By Sea

See Boston from the water while on a scenic sightseeing harbour cruise. Check out the city’s historic skyline, bridges spanning the Charles River and Boston’s harbour islands. You can sail by wooden schooner, take a climate-controlled boat ride or enjoy a fully narrated Duck Tour in a WWII-style amphibious landing craft.
Insider tip
Boston police regulate all taxis and pedi-cabs, historically called Hackney Carriages – look for the medallion that says 'Boston Licensed Taxi'.

Steeped In History

Step aboard a full-scale restored 18th-century boat and explore American history at the Boston Tea Party Ships & Museums during your Boston cruise. Let historical interpreters, artefacts and an award-winning film engage you in the story of the Sons of Liberty, whose infamous political protest helped ignite the American Revolution.

Local Cuisine

Nothing beats eating a New England lobster roll by the harbour. And don’t miss Union Oyster House, one of America’s oldest restaurants, for Island Creek oysters and their famous clam chowder. Try Boston baked beans and scrod fish fillets. Parker House rolls and Boston cream pie were both conceived here too – and head to the North End for Italian-American fare, especially the sweet cannoli.

Shopping

Newbury Street offers a mix of upscale retailers and art galleries. Converse shoes were born here — design your own pair at the flagship store. Cruise to Boston and brattle Book Shop sells rare first editions in a hidden alleyway. Or stop by Faneuil Hall for handbags, scrimshaw items and jewelry hand-made by local artisans.
