The Boston Swan Boats Opening Day!!
One of my earliest memories is my father taking me on a Swan Boat Ride as a little boy growing up in Boston. True Bostonian’s have been once or twice perhaps on a school trip even. Known as one of the top things for tourists to do in Boston. The Swan Boats are a local staple dating back to the 1800’s.
