USS Constitution ('Old Ironsides')
Other Ideas: Castle Island and Fort Independence; Walden Pond State Reservation; Boston Haymarket; Swan Boat Rides; The Hatch Shell
Now you can explore USS Constitution's decks two hours longer and see areas previously closed. Experience 19th-century sleeping quarters at sea when your guided tour takes you to the previously-unavailable Berth Deck. From 4:00pm - 6:00pm, conduct self-guided tours of USS Constitution's top deck.
The USS Constitution staff recommends the 'Speed Line' for their littlest visitors (no strollers on deck, as they tend to roll with the waves). The full 40-minute tour includes climbing up and down stairs and ladders and is not recommended for little children.
Nonetheless, you'll get a view of the harbor atop this beautiful sailing vessel and the chance to meet a real U.S. Navy Sailor.
