Boston’s unique skyline—including both old and new architecture—and famous landmarks ensure that there’s always something to see from the large windows of the helicopter. Race above the sailboats on the Charles River, and then fly over fashionable Back Bay. Catch Red Sox fever as you soar over Fenway Park. The helicopter will fly past the skyscrapers of the Financial District as well as historic buildings. Peer down as tourists and locals take in the activities of Quincy Market, and hear Samuel Adams’ voice echoing as you look down at Faneuil Hall. Take in the Zakim Bridge, the largest cable-stayed bridge in the world, and then get a taste of Little Italy as you fly over the north end of town. Finally, take in the sights of the upscale Beacon Hill neighborhood and the old and new State Houses.
