Boston Harbour is amazing, it still has got this 19th c. port feeling about it. You can take an old style Boston Harbour tour on a sailboat.
The boat tour is amazing in itself, but the view is amazing both onto the city and the Atlantic Ocean. 
You can only take the tour in the spring, summer and fall and only when the weather is not very bad, so make sure you check it before you would head to the harbour. 

Address:
Rowes Wharf, Boston, MA, USA

Opening Hours:
Contact the captains through the website.
