Free ferry weekend and more in Boston! 🛳️

This weekend the Boston Harbor Islands is hosting free ferry rides to Georges Island. 🏞️ This island was used as a training facility for Union soldiers during the civil war, and is home to Fort Warren - originally built to protect Boston. 🏰

Georges Island is the perfect spot to picnic with a beautiful view of Boston Harbor. 🧺 You can catch this ferry right from downtown Boston’s Long Wharf North… for free!

Tickets are first come first serve, for more details visit Boston Harbor Island


This is Boston's enormous, three-story tall, inside-out glass globe built in 1935. It's a unique depiction of the planet that gives Bostonians a rare chance to see the world in a way that doesn’t distort the surface of the Earth and instead view the real relative sizes of each continent. 🔭

Interestingly, when you stand at the center of the perfect sphere, you can hear your voice in full 360-degree surround sound. 📣 The curved glass walls do not absorb the sound waves, but reflect them back, letting you hear every whisper. 🤫
