Islands of Natural Adventure

34 islands and peninsulas spread over 50 square miles make up Boston Harbor Islands National Recreation Area. From "settled" islands that offer recreational programs, concession stands, and state of the art visitor centers to "rustic" islands that provide adventures and back-to-nature camping opportunities, there is something for everyone.

Boston Harbor Islands features the largest recreational open space in the Boston area. Sleep under the stars or simply take a day (or three) to fish, hike, picnic, swim, and visit such attractions as a Civil War-era fort and historic lighthouses.
