Abigail’s Tea Room at the Boston Tea Party Ships & Museum


Dine in style with surrounding views that look over the Fort Point Channel. Contrary to popular belief, you do not have to pay for a museum ticket to eat at Abigail’s Tea Room. Sit down for some scones and tea mixed by a certified tea master, or try their delicious sandwiches and maybe a slice of one of Boston’s best Boston cream pies. The Boston Tea Party Ships & Museum is located on 306 Congress Street, in the middle of the Congress Street Bridge.

So I was excited to get to see the channel and row on a hot summer’s day!Read More

It’s 6:45 p.m. at night, and I’m in awe of how beautiful the Fort Point Channel looks. As I make my way from the Harborwalk to the Fort Point Pier, it’s impossible to not take in the wonder all around me. The sun is slowly setting, its rays beaming lazily off the glass windows of buildings. The warm summer breeze brushes past my skin as I watch the channel lazily ebb and flow. This beauty is almost enough to distract me from taking my first-ever stand up paddleboard yoga class. Tonight’s class is organized by the lovely people over at SUP YO, who offer classes in various locations in the state.Read More

Community Boat Building Boats
Community Boat Building camp on the Fort Point Channel


“Mama, let’s squish on!” my six year old daughter shouts as we see the crowd waiting for the Silver Line at rush hour. Last week I brought my daughter to the Seaport to explore the Fort Point Channel with the Community Boat Building summer camp at Fan Pier. Seeing Fort Point and the Seaport through her eyes has inspired me and my staff to finally stop talking about setting up a blog and start putting one together.Read More
