Enjoying Charles Riverboat in Boston

I never thought I would like Boston so much before I went there for the first time in July 2012. Two days there were definitely not enough but at least I had a lot of fun and tried to get to know the city as much as possible. Being a big lover of ships and cruises, in the morning I took Charles Riverboat to enjoy Boston in my way :)

Charles Riverboat leaves from Canal Park just outside of CambridgeSide Galleria (shopping mall in Cambridge on the other side of Charles River). As the name says it goes down the Charles River and let you admire both Boston (on the left side of the boat when going down the river) and Cambridge (on the right side – the place of famous Harvard University).

During 60 minutes on the riverboat, the crew will explain you a bit of history of the area and show you the most known buildings around.

On the way we saw the Prudential Tower among the other skyscrapers. It is the second tallest skyscraper in Boston with viewing platform open to public and also a restaurant on top – Top of the Hub.

Then on the way back we went under the Longfellow Bridge. Named after Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (an American poet and educator who died there in Cambridge) is the oldest unmodified existing bridge on the Charles River and the second longest one. The bridge is called the Salt and Pepper Bridge by locals.

We also got a chance to see children learning how to sail. This Community Boating is the oldest non-profit sailing organization in the US and it costs just $1 per lesson for children between 10 and 19 years.
