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

Absolutely! Everyone is friendly and talkative and drinking great beer! The leader breaks the ice by asking everyone where they are from and what brought them to Boston. Go! It will be a lot of fun!
