Don't expect great -tasting food. And bring a very expensive zoom camera lens if you want to view the islands from your boat.

Parking was $40 for all day @ the aquarium, and $30 at a lot across from the tea party ship just a short walk from here. Stay on main road instead of taking harbor walk, it is shorter. (harbor walk is prettier)

I wore I wore a skirt and summer top; others had jeans. I would say dress in what you feel comfortable in. You're sure to have a great time!.

I recommend eating at any one of the North End restaurants (Italian), and then walking from there along Cross Street, which then becomes Atlantic (past the aquarium, and another 15 minutes).

On the Red Line, go to South Station, and walk 15 minutes north along Atlantic Avenue. Or, from the north, get on the Blue line and get off at Aquarium, and walk south about the same amount of time along Atlantic.

We took the commuter ferry from Hingham. Everything matched up nicely, and it was definitely the way to avoid crowded streets and city/event parking unavailabilies.

The area closest to the ship has 2 benches but no shade. Can be tough on a hot day.

We got the "last" spot in the hotel parking lot - worth the $18/day fee but come early.

The weather was very hot and sunny.. I wore sneakers [rubber soles always recommended for potentially wet and slippery decks] and a short sleeved shirt. Brought a sweater in case it got cooler..
