Boston Duck Tours Provides Scenic Views of Beantown

Boston Duck Tours

On a recent trip to New England, I only had 24 hours to visit Boston and sample all the town had to offer. With any major city, there is only so much ground you can cover on foot, so Boston Duck Tours was kind enough to help me out with a great tour of Beantown.

Boston Duck Tours uses a reproduction of  a vehicle known as the DUKW, which was used in World War II. Known for being able to not only drive on land, but it can also be navigated through water thanks to the bottom of the vehicle serving as the ship’s hull and a propeller in the back.
