7. Swan Boots
For over 130 years, the Swan Boats have been a part of the Boston experience. As a welcome sign of Spring, they grace the waters of the Boston Public Garden, the first botanical garden in the United States. Famed in the stories Make Way for Ducklings and The Trumpet of the Swan, the Swan Boats are the only boats of their kind in the world.
To the delight of the young and old for over 130 years, the Swan Boat tradition has been preserved by the Paget Family to provide our residents and visitors with a unique Boston memory to endure for generations.
6. SOWA Market - Holiday and all
Open Sundays. May 1st through October 30th. 10AM-4pm. 460 Harrison Ave, Boston MA.
The SoWa Open Market ® offers a shopping experience like no other in Boston. With an ever-changing group of artisans, a hip location and the chance to feel the sun on your face while you browse, it’s a trip worth making. The market offers the opportunity to meet the artists, vendors and farmers behind the work. Every week offers shoppers something different and unique – you won’t want to miss it!
5. Frog Pond Come Shine or Come Snow
The Boston Common Frog Pond is managed through a public-private partnership between the Skating Club of Boston, the Boston Parks Department and the City of Boston. From wading in water in Boston's heat to ice skating in the winter.
For general information about the Frog Pond – including hours of operation, skating lessons and reservations – we encourage you to browse this website.

3. Aquarium & Science Museum
If you're looking to relax watching the fish or want to learn something AWESOME. These two attractions never bore. Even the IMAX has something going on that is guaranteed to please.
2. The BeeHive
We figured since the Beehive has the most mentions on our site, we should suggest them. With a great atmosphere, food and music, the Beehive should be made a "must" on any Bostonian's list.
1. Duck Tours
You've never toured Boston in anything that comes close to Boston Duck Tours. The fun begins as soon as you board your "DUCK", a W.W.II style amphibious landing vehicle. Tour throughout Boston in these vehicles, well constantly quacking and learning about Boston. It's a guaranteed good time, and is a constant in Boston. You know Spring is here when the Duck Tours start up again.
We hope you've enjoyed 365 so far. There is much much more to come. If you have event suggestions, please share!! It's all about community here!!
