The Swan Boats in the Boston Public Gardens have been running for more than 100 years, among of the city's oldest attractions. It hasn't gone to their heads though; tickets are just $2.75 for adults and $1.50 for kids. Seniors can climb (or roll — non-motorized wheelchairs are permitted) aboard the 15-minute ride for $2.00.
