The Tall Ships make their way into Boston Harbor
The Tall Ships returned to Boston to mark the bicentennial of the War of 1812 and the "Star-Spangled Banner."
The Coast Guard cutter, one of the tall ships arriving in Boston on Saturday for Operation Sail 2012, is a symbol of a nautical past and a training vessel.
When the Coast Guard cutter docks in the Bay State, it will have a trio of Mass. natives on board. For them, the visit is a chance to reunite with family and friends.
Where Boston meets the harbor, there's more to see, do, and eat than ever.
As the waterfront evolves, it’s adding restaurants, green space, and other attractions at a breakneck pace. Consider this your reintroduction.
