Tour tickets vary in price, so be sure to check out their website for more information on fees.

Ghosts and Gravestones of Boston

If you’re into the spooky and mysterious, you might want to take the Ghosts and Gravestones tour, which lets you tour some of Boston’s most haunted sites, visit cemeteries that are over 400 years old, and gives you exclusive night-time access into two of Boston’s oldest burying grounds.

Quincy Quarries Reservation

This is where America’s large-scale, granite quarrying industry was born, and is now a historic site. These quarries operated from the late 19th century until the mid-20th century. Today, the park has granite slabs covered in street art and is the perfect place for rock climbers and people who love history and nature, especially when the two combine.

There’s also a Stone Zoo. Tickets for Franklin Park Zoo are $19.95 for adults, $17.95 for seniors (age 62+), $13.95 for children 2-12, and children under 2 enter for free.
