    Green Turtle B&B: Charlestown Navy Yard

    $0.00

Boston Harbor has special meaning to me because I came to the United States with my parents on a ship and we landed right in Boston Harbor, so this was our first stop in the United States. It’s only fitting I find a place on the water to enjoy this lovely city.
