Take a ferry ride and explore some incredible islands surrounding Boston.

This state park is the largest one in Eastern Massachusetts, and there is so much to see. Explore over 30 islands and peninsulas during your stay in beautiful Boston. These islands are open 7 days a week during the daytime hours, and you can enjoy outdoor activities such as camping, hiking, bird watching, boating, or tidepooling as you explore them. Camping season runs from late June to Labor Day, and campsites can be reserved online up to 6 months in advance. Keep in mind that leashed pets are only allowed on the mainland islands. 

There is a welcome center with a lot of information to help you figure out which islands to visit. If you want to see some notable historical sites, check out Fort Warren or Fort Andrews. Lighthouse tours are also popular and will give you close up views of Long Island Light, Graves Light, and the Boston Light (the first light station in the U.S.). The following islands are accessible by ferry: Georges, Spectacle, Peddocks, Lovells, Grape, Bumpkin, Little Brewster, and Thompson. Your ferry ticket purchase is a round trip, and you can spend as much time as you want on the islands. You don’t have to take the same ferry back on your return trip.
