So pretty!!! Not only is this just a beautiful park, but it's also the prettiest way to cut through the city. Just go see. It's so worth it.

Great spot to walk around on a nice day. Surrounded by lots of shops, coffee houses and restaurants to spend the day visiting. Highly recommend a visit anytime of the year: spring blooms, a summer stroll, fall leaves changing or a snowy winter adventure.

You really can't avoid the gardens if you're in central Boston. Beautiful topiary, arboretum and sculptures. Have a leisurely stroll and take some photos!

This is classic Boston. Take your time and stroll through the gardens. Even if you're not traveling with children, you have to see Make Way for Ducklings! It's a busy, lovely place in all seasons.

Killing time and walked through and enjoyed the area. Lots of space for being in middle of city. Swan boat ride was closed by time we got to them

Visit this historic and ritzy Boston neighborhood to
soak up its classic New England charm as you stroll
down cobblestoned, gas-lamp lined streets. Bring your
walking shoes, camera, and select a nice day to wander
through the hilly neighborhood and check out its
exclusive addresses. Louisburg Square, Mt. Vernon
street, Chestnut street and the extremely narrow and
widely photographed Acorn street make a nice walking

I would recommend getting to the North End for lunch or dinner. I would also head to the waterfront downtown, and the Rose Kennedy Greenway. It has a carousel and some cool fountains for the 2yo, and takes you past the... More
