“Honestly I was expecting something better”
Reviewed 19 August 2014

I think this is one of the less attracting waterfronts I've ever seen, without particular attractions.

“Harbor Walk a Must!”
Reviewed 18 August 2014

Great views and easy walking along the harbor. Great to walk off all the pastries from Mike's Pastries or Chip Yard!

“A Great Walk Thru History and Salt Air!”
Reviewed 17 August 2014

The Harborwalk is really a terrific walk. It runs from the Seaport District to the North End, uninterrupted, along the Harbor, Fort Point Channel, and the various wharves. Great views of the North End and Old North Church from the Seaport, and the Financial District skyline, like the famous Boston Harbor Hotel Arch. The shuttle and tour boats are docked along the way, and you see all their comings and goings, past the Aquarium, The Tea Party Museum and its replica ship, the site of Griffin Wharf, where it actually happened, and over to the North End, past the statue of Columbus in the park. A nice brisk walk with a lot of places to stop along the way. Of course, you can start wherever you want. I always like to finish with an espresso and sfogiatelle at Modern Pastry Shop on Hanover Street, up a bit from the harbor, but just a short bit!

Reviewed 17 August 2014

If the weather is good a visit to the waterfront gives you a wonderful view of Boston and its maritime history.
