Cruise Around Beantown in Style
Boston’s Hubway bike rentals are a fun option to plan with a group of friends…or even by yourself! What’s better than having a refreshingly warm breeze flowing through your hair, your sunglasses stylishly making an appearance, and taking in the breathtaking sites Boston has to offer? Cruise along the gorgeous Charles River, take a break on one of the many docks and watch the colorful sailboats and canoes drift by. Next, ride down Charles Street and to the Public Garden to be greeted by a beautiful palette of vibrant tulips and greenery. The grand city is your treasure map, and the bike is your key to making this magnificent ride worthwhile! Pack up your backpack with a delicious picnic lunch, and you are all set to enjoy a perfect spring afternoon.

With a backdrop of Beantown’s skyscrapers against the sun’s reflection on the blue water, your eyes will surely be pleased. Whether you would like to go on a Boston Harbor Kayak Tour leaving from Kendall Square, or embark on a canoeing/kayak adventure of your own, Paddle Boston has your desires covered with rentals and fun tours. From paddleboats and stand-up paddleboards to canoes, rowboats and kayaks, take your pick and embark on a gorgeous trip down the Charles. Maybe it’s the “Barbeque Kayak Tour” that suits your fancy.

To start your spring bucket list without a luscious toast…would just be insane! A refreshing glass of elite Italian vino will do the trick.
