Just a quick ride around the pond but very cool to do. No long lines, fares only $3.50 for adults and $2.00 for kids. Great way to spend some time in the beauty that is the Boston Public Garden.

Yeah, it is a tourist attraction, but it's cheap, fun, and a "must-do" if you ever read "Make Way for Ducklings" to your kids. It's powered by guys who pedal the craft around the pond, so it's also "green." I would recommend it.

The Swan Boats never disappoint. We had a great ride and saw the ducks and swans. Great event for all ages. Awesome views of Boston and special on a hot summer afternoon.

It's the Swan Boats! Have you really been to Boston if you don't ride them? :) A throwback to a simpler time. A relaxing little treat. Why not? It is a family business and just a fun way to go around the pond. Great for all ages!
