Art Museum
$$
“The Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum is an art museum in Boston, Massachusetts, which houses significant examples of European, Asian, and American art. Its collection includes paintings, sculpture, tapestries, and decorative arts. It is originally the home of Isabella Stewart Gardner, whose will called for her art collection be permanently exhibited "for the education and enjoyment of the public forever". An auxiliary wing, adjacent to the original structure near the Back Bay Fens, was completed in 2012.[2][3] In 1990, thirteen of the museum's works were stolen; the crime remains unsolved and the works have not been recovered.”

Harbour / Marina
“A five minutes ride brings you to this wonderful location. It's an easy walk around (about 1.5 miles) on mostly flat and paved ground. You can also bike on the trail. The views are very bucolic. I have always dreamed to learn sailing and you can just do that at the pond. I have caught quite a few fish in those dark waters including carp and catfish but there are also massive rainbow trouts. Grab a pair of waders if you want to catch those! ”

General Travel
“You might have seen members of the Celtics, Bruins, Patriots or Red Sox riding on them on TV, but the experience of going on a Duck Boat isn’t just reserved for professional athletes. The Boston Duck Tour is definitely my number one recommendation for things to do in Boston in the summer. It’s a unique attraction and such a fun way to see the city’s sights. The tour will take you on a guided ride across land and water which will go past top tourist locations. See Boston’s top sites such as Trinity Church, the Hancock Tower, the Boston Common, the Holocaust Memorial, the Boston Public Garden and even “Cheers.” Check out our guide for tips for taking a Boston Duck Tour.”
