Boston Tall Ships - 7/4/2012

Jump to last reply

Anyone around the Boston area this week should consider trying to see some of these ships. As part of annual July 4th Boston celebration and this year to commemorate the 200th War of 1812 Anniversary, there are assorted tall ships and US Navy vessels docked for the week - most offering free tours. BostonHarborCruises.com has lots of sailings where you can see them from Boston Harbor - might be worth checking out, although the one we were on today gave us a chance to see them in sail as they entered the Harbor.

Boston had all sorts of activity today, sailors from several countries wandering around in uniform, and other events. Worth a trip in - forget about finding street parking, though and be careful since we saw them towing cars.
