  • This is a beautiful walk around Deer Island. The views are very picturesque, and there are plenty of bathrooms along the way. Definitely bring a water bottle and a few snacks, as the time it takes to walk around and taking the sites is long. Great for personal exercise, or leisurely strolling, or a group sightseeing. Bring sunglasses on a bright day. 😎🌞

  • I went here just to walk around and clear my head. The views are great, the flowers and plants all give you a wonderful fresh air smell, and it's very peaceful. I could see how parking could be a bit of an issue, but it wasn't a problem while I was there. Really a pretty place to go for a walk

  • The Boston Harbor Islands are a true gem for Boston. I'd recommend visiting any of them if you get a chance. It's great to be able to get away from the city for a day and experience the outdoors in the harbor just a few minutes by boat from Boston. Check the ferry schedules for planning a trip to the islands.

  • Plenty of things to do and explore on the islands. Some islands have camping and even just a day visit is fun. Lots of historic ruins, some islands have guided tours. Ferry available so you can visit more than one island if you wish. Great seasonal hidden gems

  • Some easy hikes and nice view of the Boston Skyline. Not much more than that. A great place for a picnic. Ferry ride is nice though! Definitely worth the money for both a ferry ride and a park visit, but I wouldn't choose it over many of the other Boston attractions if your time is limited as a tourist.
