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

It maps out at 3.5 miles. Mostly flat with a couple hills and a couple sets of stairs. We can do it in 3.5 hours but the breaks, pace, and crowds vary from group to group so average closer to 4
