We did a walking tour around Boston Common, quite interesting. The area is nice and clean, nice place to go for a walk.

This park is where the Boston trail starts however go into the visitor centre where you will find loads of information on Boston.
The Cheers bar is at one end in Hampshire house and proudly displays the flag of Cheers.
Take a stroll through the park and enjoy the monuments, walkways and scenery that is beautiful.
Spring must be so good here so take a walk and don’t forget to do both parks.

A nice spot to sit and people watch. It is also a great place to take the kids on a hot summer day, because the ice skating rink turns into a wading pool with fountains that they can splash in. If you are not into people watching or wading in the water, you can meet up with a tour guide to start your journey through history on the the Freedom Trail.
