This is a great walk around a causeway to a historic fort that you won't want to miss This is a very beautiful area just south of Boston. You will walk around an enclosed bay past a beach, a WWII memorial and then to one of the countries most famous forts which was built to defend the city of Boston. The lawn around the fort is also perfect for a picnic lunch. Keep your eye out for planes overhead (close overhead) from Logan airport as well as kiteboarders zooming around in the bay.

Come see the planes overhead heading for Logan International Airport. The hike is easy and there is a parking lot at the entrance.
