Making lemonade out of lemons. This used to be a noisy and smelly highway and after the Big Dig is a beautiful public space.

We visited the greenway on a day when crafters were present. We enjoyed looking at the goods they had for sale.

We wandered around here after a trip to the Boston Tea party. A pleasant green area is the middle of town to sit and chill and have lunch from one of the many chuck wagons.

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
