Just 45 minutes from the rush of downtown, the Boston Harbor Islands keep you close to the city without making you actually feel, you know, close to the city. Isolated beaches and camping spots and the remains of an old Civil War fort dominate this 34-island state park, all within a Tom Brady throw of an urban center chock full of greatrestaurants, museums, and shopping.–Yankee Magazine, May/June 2010
