A short walk from The Ritz-Carlton, Boston Common will take you through some of the most storied moments in U.S. history as you tour Boston’s museums and historic sites. The Old State House, Faneuil Hall, the Old North Church, Paul Revere’s House and the Boston Public Library are all nearby.
The Charlestown Navy Yard is just a ferry ride away from the hotel. The naval yard is home to the oldest actively commissioned vessel on Earth, the USS Constitution — more commonly known as “Old Ironsides” because cannon balls bounced off the ship’s hull during a battle in the War of 1812. Today, the museum ship’s crew of active-duty Navy personnel serve to promote the history and present role of the U.S. Navy through public events, education, outreach and historic demonstrations. You can board the ferry from Boston Harbor, which is less than a half-mile walk from The Ritz-Carlton.
Additionally, you can hop on the MBTA green line train from Boylston Street near the hotel and ride six stops to the MFA station, where the Boston Museum of Fine Arts and the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum are located.
