George's Island is the major island in the Boston Harbor Island National Recreation Area, a park comprised of 10 islands that is managed by a coalition of federal, state and city agencies. Accessible only by private boat or a 45-minute ferry ride from Long Wharf, this island features hiking trails, picnic areas and the remains of a Civil War-era fort. From here, a free water taxi can shuttle you to the other islands in the park. This island does have restrooms and a snack bar, but it's wise to bring provisions if you plan to island-hop. There are around 150 free events during the summer! Open daily from 9a.
Georges Island is a fun adventurous place to visit.But a few things stink like literally stink theres like animal poop everywhere and you cant throw anything away on the island that you didnt buy from their snack bar cause since its a Island it cant manage to throw away junk that they didnt create themselves.The snack bar is delicious believe me but you wouldnt really want to go there on a rainy day cause its NO fun at all.And after you visit it once or twice the adventurous part starts to fade away.You would love to visit it at least once in your life. It would be nice to visit it every few years so you dont remember all the hiding places.Its an AMAZING place to explore especially if you love mysteries.You should learn about the Lady In Black before you visit just to know a bit about the legend.Hope this review helps!
I went there and heard the scream and face of the lady in black. It was sunset, and nobody was in the pitch black hall but us. But then in the wall a face molded, and she said "Get Out!" No lie! But it's fun during the day!
Geroge's Island is awesome! It costs $10 for the ferry over, make sure you're getting on the fast boat, 20 minutes, instead of the slow boat, 45 min to an hour. Once you're there you can expolore the island, camp, go inside the fort - you may want to bring a flash light for that. Then you can also take free boats to the other islands around George's and they are all beautiful. I would make it a day trip, so nice!
