Boston Places to See

There's lots of good places to checkout in Boston, Massachusetts, here are five little known places to check out:

Swan Boat on the Boston Garden
Take a nice relaxing ride on the Swan Boats in the Boston Garden. There really isn't much to see on your short tour, but it's a nice relaxing way to spend the afternoon. A fun thing to do is see if you can find the hidden swan boat symbol someplace around the swan boat pond. Hint: Try looking up.

Boston Stone
On Marshall Street near Fanuel Hall Marketplace is where you'll find the historic Boston Stone. This stone used to mark the center of Boston. There's nothing to do but take pitures with you and the Stone and walk on historic Marshall Street which is a cobblestone street.

Mysterious Grave in the Boston Commons
In the Boston Commons, near Tremont Street and Boylston Street, lies an old graveyard. William Billings is buried someplace in the graveyard. There is a sign just outside of the gate letting you know about the mysterious grave.

Museum of Science
The Boston Museum of Science is a great place to spend a day, but there are two exhibits you may not know about. On the third floor there is a library filled with all sort of science books, and a live bees nest. Yes, a live Bees nest! Just inside of the library is where you can see and hear the bees. Bonus: Ask the librarian about the Owl display. That's a secret display on the fourth floor. You can only get there if you are a Museum of Science worker. If you ask nicely someone may show you the display.

Boston Marathon Finish Line
Right in front of the Main Entrance of the Boston Public Library on Boylston street is the finish line of the Boston Marathon. You can see the Finish line almost any time of the year.
