Don't miss the harbor islands, especially if you are avisitor to Boston. This island has an awesome old granite fort (Fort Warren) which was built in the 1800s. You can access almost the whole complex inside and out. It's full of hidden passages, dark staircases, underground barracks with gun ports that open to ocean views. From the top WWII era observation towers there is a panoramic view of the adjacent islands and the harbor. Bring a flashlight and explore! We live in the area and spend a lot of time on the water. This is where we bring out of town guests to see a part of historic Boston that many people miss. Access is easy with the Boston Harbor ferry system from downtown and umass... check the schedule boats run all day most days in the summer.
