We bought on line our parking fee, added two hours on line while we were finishing our lunch and got and parking ticket. Reason is that you can not stay at the same spot while their web site allow it. Total scam.

Forty years and still trying to love Boston’s City Hall. It’s problem is it’s context with the neighborhood. It appears out of place and it’s architect is not strong enough to stand on its own. Not monumental and remains out of character. The Center yards...More

This Orwelly building gives no further apetite at first glance. Enter! Its free admission through the security and just explore it. Beatiful light, original non-restored, tons of adorable details, still 1984 but a true masterpiece of brutal on the edge architecture.

I really enjoyed visiting the City Hall in Boston. Parking is really hard, but is worth to expend the sunset around the hall.

We stumbled upon the City Hall plaza here with the cool BOSTON sign and took photos, hung out, watched people, laughed, sat on the walls/benches, and just enjoyed ourselves.

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
