That’s why we’ve put together this concise list of fun things to do in Boston! Whether you’re looking to explore the city, take to the skies, or enjoy the beautiful Boston Harbor, you’ll find something on the list that’s sure to please and create lasting memories.

Without further ado, here’s our recommendations for an unforgettable Boston experience.

Fly a Helicopter – Take the controls of a Robinson R44 helicopter with an FAA-certified instructor by your side. After 30 minutes of pre-flight instruction, you’ll take to the air and test out your newly acquired skills. Be careful! Flying helicopters can be habit-forming.

Indoor Skydiving – There’s no parachute required for this ride! And no concerns about weather, either. With indoor skydiving, you get to experience the thrill of body flight within the confines of a 12-foot wind tunnel. It’s the perfect high-adrenaline experience, available all year round. 

Duck Boat Sightseeing Tour – The classic way to see Boston! A Boston Duck Tour is a fantastic way to tour the city on both land and water in a renovated World War II amphibious vehicle. You’ll love seeing the sites in this unique and interesting way.

Whale Watching – Imagine the grandeur of seeing a majestic whale up close …. feeling the ocean spray on your face and the wind in your hair as you race across Boston Harbor on a high-speed catamaran. Get expert knowledge from professional researchers and enjoy three hours of whale-sized fun on this can’t-miss tour!

Race Car Driving – Feel the need for speed? The Boston area provides plenty of options for anyone who loves the thrill of the track. Ferrari, Lamborghini, stock cars, NASCAR, Indy cars — pick your poison. The vehicle may vary, but everyone agrees that it’s hard to beat the heart-pumping adrenaline rush that comes with driving a race car. 

Boston Dinner Cruise – Just because the boat moves a little slower doesn’t mean a dinner cruise is any less lively than some of the high-speed experiences. Our Boston Dinner Cruises come with toe-tapping music, a gourmet buffet, cocktails, and breathtaking views of the city. Time flies by on this memorable cruise.

Tour Historic Fenway Park – Even if you’re not a baseball fan, you’ll love the historic charm of Fenway Park! Known as “America’s Most Beloved Ballpark,” Fenway attracts visitors from around the world. Discover the stadium’s collection of more than 170,000 artifacts and 150,000 photographs.
