Five Fun Facts About Boston

1. The First Harbor and Park in America

The first boatful of new settlers came from Britain and Europe docking along the banks of Boston, MA; hence, the name New England. The first American lighthouse was built in Boston Harbor in 1716 and as with many of the country's firsts, Boston is also home to the oldest public park in the United States, catering to the bustling new world outside of the British empire.

Boston Commons is a stretch of sanctuary within the city of Boston which continues to serve residents and tourists. It dates as far back to 1634 and popular public figures like Martin Luther King Jr., Pope John Paul II, and Judy Garland have either made speeches or held concerts at the park.

Boston Harbor is shielded, in every sense of the word, by Massachusetts Bay and the open Atlantic Ocean. The harbor islands, in the meantime, is protected by the presence of Winthrop Peninsula, Deer Island, Nantasket Peninsula and Point Allerton. Boston Harbor Now is a coalition that works to preserve and protect the Boston Harbor Islands National and State Park, on top of running the Boston Harborwalk.

2. The Iconic Citgo Sign

660 Beacon Street, Boston, Massachusetts
Nothing says you’re in Boston like seeing the Citgo sign in the backdrop. Some people would venture as far as to say that they’ve used the Citgo sign as a part of their navigational tool - we’re talking about pre-WAZE and pre-Google Map days.

The iconic sign, sitting in Kenmore Square, has been a part of the Boston city’s downtown area since the 1940s and although attempts had been made to have it removed in the past, it only induced a public effort to preserve it by declaring it an iconic landmark. The Red Sox and Boston Marathon events play regular tribute to the sign, as well as regulars who see the light-draped sign as a part of their beloved Kenmore Square. In fact, the seemingly-simple sign is also seen as an inspiration for artists, movie makers, writers and journalist and have given the iconic sign an honorable regard.

Breaking Through The Boston Spring

What you do with your family and friends during spring break depends very much on your personal preferences. Some go for Spring Fever Margarita Tasting, sign up for rock climbing classes with Boston Rock Gym, learn how to sail with Community Sailing on the Charles, learn how to make a free-flying hawk land on your hand with New England Falconry, while others go on a bar crawl or a wild night-out with their friends in Harvard Square in Cambridge and Davis Square in Somerville. If you're interested in theater and drama, there are awesome shows at the Boston Opera House and The Huntington Theater Company, while the Museum of Science has a stellar line-up of activities and exhibits ready to amaze even the best you.

They all sound amazing, we know, but here are some options that we think you may consider if you’re thinking of spending some time outdoors after the cold weather. As long as you have the Boston charter bus waiting around for you when you’re done, it’s all good!

Take your little ones out, bring your parents, grab your best friends, or drag your better half and head out for the whale-watching season with the nearest whale-watching tour guide this spring! Organizations like the Boston Harbor Cruises and the Whale Watch Tour Boston offer great deals for families and groups, so, DO take advantage of the promotions. Some may promise you a money back guarantee on the voyage, especially if you’re planning on a whole-day tour looking out for humpbacks, finbacks, minkes and pilot whales. The species, and some critically-endangered ones, would often make appearances around the waters near Boston during spring. A primary wildlife viewing destination is the Stellwagen Bank National Marine Sanctuary which is also where you might catch some white-sided dolphins in action!

The mind-blowing expeditions are manned by trained naturalists from the New England Aquarium who will give talks on board the high-speed catamarans. It’s a great way to learn about how scientists track each marine wildlife and collect data about them, their feeding ground and habitat. Most of the whales make repeat visits to the Massachusetts Bay around the same time every year, hence, the guides and scientists, literally, know each of the whale and dolphin by name.
