The Best Way to See Boston by Bill Vanderford www.georgiafishing.com

After two failed attempts to see all that Boston has to offer on my own, one phone call to Bob Leikauskas (Master Captain at Super Duck Tours of Boston) assured me the best view of the city, harbor and surrounding area. All one needs is this one simple ticket: Premium Upper Deck Trolley Tour with Cambridge Loop & Harbor Splash at www.BostonSuperTours.com.

During my two days of touring in Boston, I was amazed at the historical buildings and artifacts that have been preserved among the modern skyscrapers, which the Super Tours drivers eloquently explained. The walk through a maze of interesting shops and eateries in Quincy Market is a must. Also, nobody should come to Boston without standing on the deck of “Old Ironsides” in the Boston Navy Yard. That old ship once saved our country from the most powerful navy in the world and is still the oldest active naval vessel in history.

The Super Duck Splash and Harbor Tour are both entertaining as well as enlightening, and I found the Charles River Cruise by the Charles Riverboat Company (www.charlesriverboat.com) between Cambridge, Harvard, MIT and Boston proper to be picturesque and educational. That company also has an interesting, laid back Sunset Cruise on a real paddle wheel boat in Boston Harbor each evening.

It would take a book to mention all that I saw during my Boston stay, but some of the best other memories were of the New England Aquarium, Long Wharf, the Old State House, Boston Common, the Cheers Boston Bar and Grille, Fenway Park, the Old North Church, the Paul Revere House, the Boston Tea Party Museum, and the Old South Meeting House. Even this list is only a small portion of what can be seen in Boston...plus the people of the city are special too!
