Boston's Historic Waterfront: A Walking Tour  

Boston has a great seafaring heritage. Ocean trade and related industries had a major impact on the growth of Boston and the shape and character of its waterfront. Today's waterfront is a vibrant mix of hotels, restaurants, residences, and recreational spaces, from Atlantic Wharf on the Fort Point Channel to Battery Wharf in the North End. This tour includes the beginnings of Long Wharf as the grand entry into Boston, and the genesis of its Financial District, the lore of clipper ships and the China Trade, and classic 19th century Boston granite wharf buildings including Commercial Wharf, Lewis Wharf, and Union Wharf. Take in the spectacular views of Boston Harbor as we wind our way among the wharves—old and new.
