So if you’re planning a springtime trip to Boston, or just live in the city and are looking for fun things to do, check out these exciting offerings from FunSherpa!

USS Constitution Cruise 

The city of Boston is full of historic landmarks, but one of the most unique is the USS Constitution. We’ll set you up with a 45-minute narrated tour to learn about this famous ship and even check out the Naval Museum. You’ll see other top sites like the Bunker Hill Monument, the Old North Church, and the Boston Tea Party Boat along the tour, which runs between April and November.

Boston Jet Boat Ride 

But if you’re looking to get on the water with a little more action and excitement, consider booking a Boston Jet Boat Ride to explore the natural beauty of Boston Harbor. Jet boats reach speeds of 40 miles per hour, providing 40-minutes of fun for the whole family. Enjoy a crisp spring day in Boston with the wind in your hair and upbeat music in your ears. This adventure runs (weather dependent) between May and September.

Boston Freedom Trail Photographic Safari

Boston is an ideal city to begin perfecting your photography skills, and our Boston Freedom Trail Photographic Safari provides a unique combination of a city tour with a professional photography lesson. Your guide will take you to popular tourist attractions and low-key sites that only the locals know about to capture the essence of the city and create memories to last a lifetime. This experience takes you to the Boston Freedom Trail, Boston Common, New State House, Park Church, Faneuil Hall, Paul Revere House (just to name a few sites) and runs Wednesday through Friday from 1-5 pm.

Boston Ghosts and Gravestones Tour

As with many historic destinations, Boston’s history is steeped in ghost stories and sinister tales from days past. Book a spot on the Boston Ghosts and Gravestones Tour to experience the scarier side of the city…from the safety of a trolley! Picture this: your host is a 17th century grave digger who’s been cursed with eternal damnation and has plenty of stories to tell. You’ll be walking about half of the tour, which runs year-around and lasts about two hours.

Rock Climbing Introduction in Charlemont

You’ll need to venture just a little outside the Boston city limits to partake in this adventure, but the Rock Climbing Intro in Charlemont experience is definitely worth the short journey. Starting in June, professional rock climbing guides take adventure-seekers out on one and two-day novice rock climbing trips to this beautiful outdoor region. You’ll learn everything from knot tying to belaying, bouldering, climbing techniques, and safety precautions with friendly guidance every step of the way.
