Here's a helpful Know Before You Go page so you can prepare for this summer's outing appropriately.

Spectacle Island
With panoramic views of the Boston Harbor and an accessible lifeguarded beach, Spectacle Island is ideal for outdoor adventures or a relaxing day by the sea. Enjoy a day of hiking, listen to the sweet sounds of a jazz concert, or take in the breathtaking views from the top of North Drumlin.

Georges Island
The graceful granite archways of historic Fort Warren will greet you as you arrive for your visit to Georges Island. This Civil War-era fort is the main attraction of Georges Island and it is sure to bring out your inner history enthusiast.

During your next trip to Georges Island, enjoy a picnic, explore with a ranger-guided tour, or stop by the visitor center to delve into history and be sure to ask about the legend of the Lady in Black!
