family fun on the boston harbor islands photoMade up of 34 unique islands and peninsulas, the Boston Harbor Islands have something for everyone.

Explore a historic fort, enjoy a picnic with sweeping harbor views, fly a kite, or sleep in a rustic campsite beneath the stars. Choose an island and plan your adventure!

A visit to The Boston Harbor Islands offers beautiful views, an enjoyable ferry ride, (part of the fun is getting there...) a chance to stretch your legs, and lots of fresh air!
