The Freedom Trail goes through this garden. It is only maybe 200' X 75', but it's a nice little garden in the midst of the big city. There are several benches to sit on, and it borders a major bus stop.

Walking through this parkway is like escaping the hustle and bustle of the city. Lots of grass, flowers, trees and water fountains. There's even a fog machine! Beautiful!

I love walking from the Financial District to the North End, only about 15-20 min. You will see flowers, trees, grass (!) art, performers, chairs or benches, kids playing in fountains or yoga classe in good weather and even birds.

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

pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where,
