A Great place for biking, jogging or walking. The Boston landscape is beautiful. On weekdays it is not crowded - a real pleasure.

If you are a biker or a runner, even a walker, this is a must, particularly if the weather is nice. I suggest being there for the sunrise!

Walking on memorial drive looking back to Boston is a most that everybody should do. I run it at any time morning afternoon and night and it is wanderfull, rent a bike, take a walk and you will enjoy it a lot.

It's nice to drive along the Charles River during good weather. This particular road offers a nice view and hasn't been to crowded during the times that I've driven on it. There are quite a few good photos spots too.

it is really pleasant place to walk, jog or (avoiding the crowds) roller blade along the banks of the Charles

Memorial drive by Mass ave is the best view point, especially at night, the reflection of the buildings in the river is just amazing!
