My teenager and I enjoyed walking around Boston Public Garden. We rode the swan boats and took pictures of the Make Way for Duckings statues. It's a beautiful, well planned park space in the middle of the city. Maybe next time, we'll plan a picnic...More
We stopped here on our exploration around Boston. It’s a beautiful park, well kept and best of all, not a lot of homeless loitering around. It’s close to a lot of the tourist attraction and it’s a good place to stop and relax on your...More

The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where, during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting children and eager tourists through the pond. Have
your camera ready to capture its peaceful beauty in the middle of a bustling city. Continue on through the Gardens and take in some open green space at the Boston Common, where you can spend time throwing a frisbee, sitting on a park bench, or, in the winter time, skating on the frog pond. Head north from the end of the Common to see the golden dome of the State House, and travel through government center to Quincy Market and Faneuil Hall, both a historic and popular destination worth a quick visit for a first time to Boston. Head to Long Wharf to visit the Aquarium, or catch a boat to Charlestown or even Cape Cod.
