Swan Boats, Things to Do, Boston

What child could resist sitting in a swan? A part of Boston tourist history, these odd watercraft were created by designer Robert Paget in 1877. Youll spend 15 minutes cruising around the small lagoon, amid the ducks and willows, as eager children do their best impressions of swashbuckling pirates. The season tends to run from mid-April to Labor Day, and the boats usually wont go out in rain, high winds, or extreme heat.
