We learned, for example, that the Boston Marathon is the world's oldest and most prestigious race: the only marathon that requires participants to qualify. Chief Petty Officer Duck Pin also explained that "Boston baked beans are a huge part of Boston's culinary history," and each can of Boston baked beans has exactly 239 beans. "If we add one more bean, it would be too fahty," he quipped in his Boston accent.
Boston Duck Tours (Book Now) depart daily late March through late November from the Museum of Science and the Prudential Center and on a shorter seasonal schedule from the New England Aquarium.
These photos from our June 2007 Boston visit provide a sense of the Boston Duck Tours experience.
