Thoughts of the New England shoreline often conjure up visions of rocky outcrops, sandy beaches and grassy marshes. Other classic images gracing Boston's coastline and New England's heritage are the lighthouses. These lighthouses once kept sailors from navigating too close to shore. See these beautiful areas and their famous lighthouses from the water on the Boston Lighthouse Cruise and Tour.
