Duck Tours (0.4 miles from race expo)
At the wheel of amphibious vehicles, Duck Tours drivers brave the streets of Boston and the waters of the Charles River. The 80-minute tour passes many of the city’s historical and cultural landmarks — Bunker Hill, Boston Common, Cheers, Old North Church, Quincy Market, the TD Garden where the Bruins and Celtics play, the State House. Along the way, visitors see Boston and Cambridge from a different perspective. ‘‘Even though Boston is known as America’s greatest walking city, Boston Duck tours will bring you to areas you can’t reach by foot, namely the middle of the Charles River,’’ said marketing director Bob Schwartz. Best of all, runners simply sit back and enjoy the view.
