Boston Waterfront Tourism Heats Up.  Water Taxis are the way to go these days.

These days, the best way to see Boston is by sea, not land.  With the Boston Waterfront tourism growing, it is becoming the hottest real estate to invest in.

There have been all sorts of exciting and interesting small businesses cropping up all around the Boston Harbor, from green taxis to floating vacation rentals.   Just this summer, the Rowes Wharf Water Transport partnered up with South Boston Waterfront hotel to provide zero-emission traveling to and from Logan Airport in the electric-driven boat called “Unplugged”.

For seven bucks and 10 minutes on the water, you get the perfect, stress-free ride to the airport found no where else.  Not a bad deal.  Especially for many of us who know all about the hassle of Boston Traffic or connecting with the red line to the silver line, and so forth on the MBTA rail system.

What’s even better, especially for those of us who live on the Waterfront, are the water shuttles that go back and forth to all the different wharfs.  Now we can hitch a ride to the up-and-coming Fan Pier, visit the restaurant-popular Liberty Wharf, take the Boston Lobster Tours at the Battery Wharf, check out the Innovation District, see the famous Tea Party location, and the list goes on.

Another trending waterfront attraction is the houseboat rental in the Boston Harbor.  Now folks can get a Boston Waterfront experience that’s more immersed than ever before!  Doesn’t get any better than living on the water, especially with the gorgeous Boston cityscape as your backdrop.  These houseboats are now becoming equipped with Wi-Fi internet, roof decks, and other amazing amenities.

There is no doubt about it, the Boston Waterfront is a hot zone for fun and excitement.  If you would like to read more all about it, feel free to check out this most recent Boston Globe article, “Marine Tourism Gaining Steam“.
