"Boston Harbor" Harbor Cruises & Whale Watch Tours Tip by Ewingjr98

Boston Harbor contains Boston Harbor Islands National Park, 34 islands with various historical sites, recreation areas, and natural preserves. Some of the most famous areas are the historic Boston Light on Little Brewster Island and Fort Warren on Georges Island.

The newest addition to the park is Spectacle Island which was used in the 1990s as a location to dump the excess earth from the construction of the Ted Williams Tunnel. Today Spectacle has a marina, restaurants, and other recreation.
