about Boston Harbor Islands:
Linking the inner and outer parts of Boston Harbor, and extending eleven miles from downtown Boston are the Boston Harbor Islands. It is a designated national park area, composed of thirty islands that range in size from less than an acre to 214 acres. Logan International Airport is located on Boston Harbor. Visitors can stop at one of two national park service information booths when planning a trip to any of the islands. An information kiosk staffed by park service rangers is located on Long Wharf next to the ferry ticket booth, across from the New England Aquarium. The National Park Area Discovery Center is located at Fan Pier at the U.S. Courthouse. Call 617.223.8666 to reach either location.
