Imagine one wonderful day when you combine a trip to Georges Island in Boston Harbor with a visit to Jasper White's Summer Shack, one of the best places for lobster and seafood within the city (and islands).
Take the water ferry from the downtown to Georges Island, part of the Boston Islands National Park. Explore Fort Warren, a Civil- War era fort known for it graceful granite passageways and mysterious "Lady in Black" affording extensive views of the city and harbor - a reminder of Boston's maritime past.
There is a visitors center with interpretive exhibits that detail the unique history of the island as well as plenty of spaces to enjoy the views or programmed activities offered by the Boston Harbor Islands Partnership.
Grab a bite to eat at the Summer Shack before heading home.
