Visiting Boston

Don't forget to bring a rock with you to Walden Pond. Here's why: The actual site of the cabin is marked with granite pillars. Nearby, is the stone cairn first started by Rollins to mark the spot of his discovery. It has become a tradition for visitors to add a rock to the pile. If you ever decide to visit Thoreau's cabin site, be sure to bring your own rock.

Also, if you plan on going on the Duck Tour of Boston, be sure to book it in advance as they do sell out! http://www.bostonducktours.com/
