You'll be hard pressed to find a better view of Boston Harbor than the one from the top deck of Waters Edge, a 45-foot-long luxury boat and one of several boats in Boston Green Cruises' fleet. During cruises, the vessels travel to Charlestown, the north and south edges of Boston, East Boston, and the Seaport District. Longer journeys span all the way to the Charles River's Longfellow Bridge, known to locals as the "salt-and-pepper bridge" due to the shape of its central towers and the well-seasoned waters that surround it.
For more than 20 years, Propark America has been providing parking spaces at more than 400 locations across the country. Propark's self-serve and full-service airport parking facilities store autos during journeys and allow customers to check the status of their flights with real-time flight-schedule screens. Partnering with hotels, restaurants, and entertainment and sports venues, Propark also offers prompt and courteous valet services—often hiring college track athletes for their dependable, disciplined, and speedy legs—and supplying drivers with safe car storage should football-touchdown dances get entirely out of hand.
Part of Propark's mission includes a commitment to sustainability, as seen through its Canopy Airport Parking site at the Denver International Airport. The energy-efficient location utilizes charging stations for electrical vehicles, LED lighting, a solar-panel farm, and wind turbines. Propark is also a founding partner of the Green Parking Council, which helps convert parking facilities into environmentally-responsible operations, and offers free loaner bikes at participating hotels.
Park Shuttle & Fly has been a reliable and convenient parking alternative at Logan Airport for more than 35 years. Located near the terminals with free shuttles orbiting the airport, Park Shuttle & Fly promises a quick way for visitors to leave their cars and catch a flight. Customers pull up to the window and tell the operator when they can return, drop off their car, and then catch a shuttle ride to their terminal. When they land back in Boston, they call Park Shuttle & Fly, who sends a shuttle to pick them up and reunite them with their vehicle. Meanwhile, cars are secured and safe while travelers are away, meaning they aren't in danger of being tampered with or getting into illegal craps games with their window dice.
