The Ferry to Georges Island

Friday was another freebie, this time a trip on the ferry out of the Boston harbor to one of the harbor islands. I took what was available and we ended up going to Georges Island. What a fun day! The kids absolutely loved the 25 minute ferry ride there and back and almost couldn't stop dancing and laughing the whole way (when they weren't trying to climb the railing) Georges Island was really cool. There is an old military fort there (which is rumored to be haunted- I think that was Nora's favorite part) and tours going throughout. There is also a really cool visitors center and gorgeous beach that was littered with shells, smooth stones, and sea gulls- all of which my kids love. I loved the fact that the whole day cost less than $20. $6 for lunch (right on the beach!) and $11 to park.
