Stuck in the city this summer? Breathe easy: Not only is July National Parks and Recreation Month, but Beantown is a stone’s throw from a handful – 34 to be exact – of distinct destinations that comprise Boston Harbor Islands National State Park.
No matter your interest, there’s something sure to strike the fancy of every intrepid explorer, from Civil War-era forts and historic lighthouses to lush hiking trails and tidal pools.
Each locale boasts its own natural environment which, coupled with unique cultural features, makes each place in the park rife for exploring all (sweltering) summer long.
Overnight accommodations not required.
