Out­door En­thu­si­ast

Where Boston - - WHERE INSIDE | BOSTON YOUR WAY -

Did you know? One of Bos­ton’s best-kept se­crets is its Bos­ton Har­bor Is­lands Na­tional Recre­ation Area (1). A ferry takes pas­sen­gers to Ge­orges Is­land, the park’s hub, where Fort War­ren is a spec­tac­u­lar and spooky land­mark for in­ves­ti­ga­tion. Later, pedal around Amer­ica’s walk­ing city, cour­tesy of Bos­ton Bike Tours by Ur­ban Ad­ven­tours (2), past pop­u­lar sights. If you’re feel­ing the urge to ex­pend more calo­ries, rent a kayak, ca­noe, row­boat, pad­dle board or pad­dle boat at Charles River Ca­noe & Kayak on the Charles River—the views are spec­tac­u­lar. Then steady your sea legs aboard a New Eng­land Aquar­ium Whale Watch (3) on a jour­ney to Stell­wa­gen Bank. Spot­ting minke, fin­back and Hump­back whales takes ef­fort, but the thrill of see­ing one breach the surface is to­tally worth it. 40
