It is a nice walkway and I enjoyed the waterfront. You could just wonder around or drop into a restaurant for a bite.

We had a lovely few hours walking around here, taking in the beautiful views and all the different boats. A must visit. Especially at night when it's dark and all the lights are on.

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
