446 - Boston Duck Tour 4
 
As a student in downtown Boston, the Boston Duck Tour might give you a bit of a fright. Those boats on wheels are massive and you hope to the heavens that the driver can see you as you cross the street. Then there’s the flashing lights that come from the cameras in the passenger seats and you wonder if any unflattering pictures of you will surface on the Internet.

But all of the silly fears aside, the Boston Duck Tour is an innovative way to explore the city of Boston that’s fun for the entire family.

The big boats on wheels are actually World War II amphibious landing vehicles that take you through Newbury Street, the Freedom Trail, Fenway Park, and Quincy Market. And when you’ve spotted all of Boston’s most famous sites, the Duck Tour takes you on the Charles River, where you can catch a view of the city unlike anything you’ve ever seen before.

As you head out of class, your fear of the Duck can wither away because the ConDUCKtors are highly trained operators of the vehicles and they hignly encourage waving and quacking at pedestrians.

So if you’re looking for something to do when you’re in Boston, the Duck Tours are a fun adventure and a perfect way to see the city! A stay at the Beacon Inn is the perfect way to relax and unwind after a day of sightseeing. We are just minutes away from all the local attractions Boston has to offer, but just far enough that you won’t have to listen to all the quacking!
