Whether it's a vacation destination or a place to call "home," this magnificent state capital of Massachusetts comes with unforgettable opportunities to explore its urban offerings by air, land and sea.

    It may be known as 'America's Walking City,' but one of the best things to do in Boston is to explore it by air. Boston flying experiences present a truly unique, new way to view the city skyline, local hot spots, surrounding natural beauty, and downtown landmarks on a helicopter tour or gentle hot air balloon ride.

    Looking for fun Boston events that make the heart go "Boom!"? Virgin Experience Gifts's action-packed Boston experience gifts make it happen! Take the ride of a lifetime in a race car, hitting unfathomable speed and G-force on professional tracks near Boston. Brave some Beantown skydiving — either straight out of a plane, or from the comfort of a state-of-the-art indoor skydiving experience in nearby Nashua! Or strap on a life jacket and zip through the Boston Harbor on a 2800-HP Codzilla boating thrill ride!

    Prefer to tour the Boston Harbor at nice 'n' easy pace? Try lunch or dinner on a boat, scenic sunset cruises and sailboat outings, kayak tours, canoe trips, and laid-back whale watching excursions.
