It's so nice to be able to walk for miles along the waterfront in Boston. I'm very impressed of this project and wish more cities by the water would do the same. After a day downtown, stroll over the Kennedy Greenway and through North End,...More

If you like mission-less walking, surely you will enjoy. Different building, looks more beautiful in the evening, with nice people walking by, water area with boats, etc... yes, it has charm

Downtown
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
