If you've never been on a Duck Tour in Boston, consider a trip this year!

What is a Duck Tour?

A duck tour is one of the best, most entertaining ride around Bean Town you could do this Summer and it's great for the whole family.  You can see the whole city of Boston on land and sea all in the same vehicle!  First, you have to buy your ticket.  More on that a little later in this article.  Then, you wait for the Duck Boat to pick you up and bring you all around Boston on land and on sea!

ConDUCKtors Make the Trip Fun

As you ride the amphibious vehicle, a/k/a the "Duck," the ConDUCKtor will give you a history of Boston as you pass by each landmark.  If you live here, you might think that you know a lot about Boston already, but boy, I'd bet that you don't know as much as them.  They have to study the history of Boston to know it inside and out.

Here's Where You Can Hop on a Duck

There are three locations where you can hop on your duck:  The Museum of Science, the Prudential Center, and the New England Aquarium.  You can use public transit to get to all of those locations.  The website says that you should not have more than a 15 to 20-minute walk to any of those locations.

The Ducks Really Go In the Water

It always freaks me out a little when it comes time for the ducks to actually get into the water.  This vehicle that was just rolling down Boylston Street, for instance, is now floating in the Charles River.  It's absolutely seamless!

LOOK: Here are the 50 best beach towns in America

Every beach town has its share of pluses and minuses, which got us thinking about what makes a beach town the best one to live in. To find out, Stacker consulted data from WalletHub, released June 17, 2020, that compares U.S. beach towns. Ratings are based on six categories: affordability, weather, safety, economy, education and health, and quality of life. The cities ranged in population from 10,000 to 150,000, but they had to have at least one local beach listed on TripAdvisor. Read the full methodology here. From those rankings, we selected the top 50. Readers who live in California and Florida will be unsurprised to learn that many of towns featured here are in one of those two states.
