Depart from Long Wharf
You'll be so close to Boston, but feel so far away on this 105-acre island. Check out the trails, beach, and the solar-powered visitor center. And if you miss the city, climb to the highest point — a 157-foot high hill — for panoramic views of the Hub.
Ferry service starts on May 8 — check the website for times. Round-trip ticket: $14, $10 seniors, $8 children. bostonislands.org
