Being a Tourist in Boston with Go City Card: From Duck Tours to Museums

Traveling can get expensive, that's a fact. Never mind the flight and the hotels, once you get to your destination, it can cost a lot of money to visit the all the attractions you want to see. Thankfully, you can save money with multi-attraction packages like Go City Card from Smart Destinations.

They recently gave A Traveling Life5 Things to Eat, and me a 3-attraction Explorer Pass to try out. It was our chance to do all the touristy Boston stuff that we haven't done!
Our first attraction was the Boston Duck Tour. We got on the tour at the Science Museum.

The bus goes to Boston Common area and continues on to Back Bay to Copley Square.

It then heads back to Cambridge and near the Science Museum and enters the Charles River from there. The best part is getting in the water!

Previewing the Nantucket Wine Festival

It's almost time for the ultimate New England island-style food and wine celebration. It's almost time for Nantucket Wine Festival. I recently got to preview some of the food and wines that will be at the 5-day celebration up at State Room, with a view of the Boston Harbor (you'll be getting a different harbor view on Nantucket!)

Nantucket Wine Fest Preview
The Nantucket Wine Festival will take place on May 18-22, 2016 and will feature over 50 events including various tasting seminars, breakfast on the harbor, and grand tastings in which over 600 wines will be poured.

Barking Crab (Boston, MA)

Barking Crab is a tourist spot but it's also an institution in Boston's Fort Point. It's a casual seafood spot - in a tent with a view of the water and the city of Boston. With that New England clam shack-like setting and the faux grass in a heated tent, Barking Crab is a meeting place that feels like summer all year long.

Barking Crab
Just like a seafood shack would, drinks are served in plastic cups. Moscow mules, mojitos, and other refreshing drinks are available - they tend on the sweet and strong side.

Obviously, I had to try the crab at Barking Crab. They offer three types and I chose the one I haven't had before: Bairdi crab ($31)

Brunch and Tour Around Boston Harbor with Odyssey Cruise

Visiting the Boston Harbor is a must. If you want to do classy cruise around the harbor, consider a brunch cruise with the Odyssey.

The brunch is a champagne brunch buffet for $62.90 that departs on Sundays. I'm not sure how many dining decks there are, but each one is spacious and comfortable. The price includes one glass of champagne and all the food from the buffet.

Plenty of space between each white table-cloth settings. Passengers can start boarding at eating at noon, and the ship leaves the dock at 1pm.

They invited us bloggers because they just started a Bloody Mary and Mimosa cart for brunch that's available for an additional charge. Their Bloody Mary was quite good and a little spicy. I had mine with Ketel One but if you want more spice you can try the Absolut Pepper instead. For the garnish, the options include bacon, shrimp, clam, candied ginger, caper, celery, pickled ginger, and more.
