Other than Boston’s famous baked beans, The Boston marathon, and Fenway Park, Massachusetts’ capital is also known for its beautiful oceanic shoreline. Boston’s waterfront hosts several iconic landmarks and attraction spots, including Charles River Esplanade, one of the best locations to sit back, relax and unwind while sitting on one of the many benches. Another tourist spot is the Museum of Science. It hosts a spectacular planetarium and an IMAX theater, and if you are a sailor by heart, the U.S.S Constitution is the perfect place to visit, a place where old navy-commissioned ships are docked.
