Boston Waterfront

Youth (10-17)

Explore Boston from a different angle on a photo tour. Learn how to take creative pictures with your camera or smartphone in 90 minutes!

Boston Harbor has witnessed the arrival of British soldiers, the influx of European immigrants, international trade, and a certain “tea party.”

Times have certainly changed. The waterfront is now a trendy area of the city overflowing with photo opportunities of Boston Harbor, Christopher Columbus Park, Long Wharf, colorful roses in the Rose Kennedy Garden, the iconic Custom House building, and the dancing fountains on the Greenway.

PhotoWalks founder Saba Alhadi, a professional local photographer and tour guide, will show you how to compose impressive images from unique viewpoints with your camera or smartphone.
