Summer’s nearly here and we’re using any excuse to be by the sea. Lucky for us, Boston water taxis offer service to top restaurants and bars along Boston Harbor. Another destination that offers aquatic transportation is Charleston, South Carolina. A stay at Charleston Harbor Resort & Marina places guests steps from Patriots Point, where they can then enjoy a scenic, 30-minute Fort Sumter Tours ferry ride to the historic Fort Sumter National Monument. If you’re itching for a warm-weather ferry ride, why not take a cruise in one of these top cities?
Seattle: Scope out sailboats, the Seattle skyline and the Cascade Range during a 35-minute ferry ride from downtown Seattle to scenic Bainbridge Island, where you’ll enjoy 23 miles of walking trails, charming cafés and breathtaking sunsets over Puget Sound.
New Orleans: Hop aboard the Algiers Ferry from Canal Street for a free, 10-minute ride across the Mississippi River. Once you reach the peaceful and residential Algiers Point, spend some time exploring 19th-century homes, cafés and the Jazz Walk of Fame.
San Francisco: Skirt past Alcatraz Island and glimpse the Golden Gate Bridge during a 30-minute ride from the San Francisco Ferry Terminal to scenic Sausalito. There, you can spend some time touring the town’s eclectic art galleries, seafood restaurants and colorful hillside homes.
