The Common adjoins the public gardens and has a similar look in many ways. We visited in late March which meant the trees were devoid of leaves and the place looked a bit bare.

We walked thru the Commons several times during our recent visit to Boston. Even with the low temperatures and snow covered grounds, the area was pleasant to be in. A great variety of shops and cafes around the perimeter. Great play ground for play breaks,...More

We spent a wonderful afternoon at the Boston Common. The park is so beautiful and surrounded by lovely neighborhoods. We enjoyed watching families with their children and pets at the park. This is a great park any time of year to take a nice stroll...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.
