Belle Isle Marsh

While most people who are asked would say that the only thing in East Boston is the airport, locals know different. It is home to an astonishing amount of great restaurants, weird little shops, statues of every different type, and Belle Isle Marsh.

The marsh is the largest surviving salt water marsh in Boston and encompasses 350 acres of land.  At one point in its history, it also hosted the Suffolk Downs Drive-in theater. But, little of that can been seen these days.

Today, the marsh is a great place to go if you want a bit of a break from the city without going too far away. Dogs are welcome and really seem to enjoy having the area to run around in. I mostly go to take pictures of the birds and other things that catch my attention.
