    Have a Picnic in Boston Common and The Public Garden

    An iconic attraction since 1837

    Boston Common and the neighbouring Public Garden rank high on any list of things to do within in the city. Boston Common is America’s oldest park and is a popular stop along the Freedom Trail. The Garden is a sight in itself, with lush weeping willows lining a pond that swans call home. The sway of the trees and its quaint suspension bridge helps to make The Public Garden one of the most relaxing and idyllic places in the city. As you walk around both grounds, look out for any historical monuments sitting between lines of trees.

    Walk along the Charles River Esplanade

    Enjoy peaceful riverside views

    The Charles River Esplanade is found on the Boston side of the river, which separates the city from Cambridge. This 3-mile leafy path is popular with joggers at all times of day, as well as flocks of wild geese. While the geese are pretty to look at, be wary of them as they are easily riled up.

    The best way to take in the charm of the esplanade is to start your walk from the Museum of Science and head towards Boston University. Along the way, you’ll come across playgrounds, marshes, sailings boats for rent and places to buy refreshments. A walk in this urban oasis also allows great views of Cambridge.

    Enjoy the view from Skywalk Observatory

    See the city from above

    The view from the 50th floor of the Prudential Center on Boylston Street takes in the Charles River, Boston Common and much of Downtown Boston. On a clear day, you can see for 100 miles. There are audio tours available to explain what you’re seeing, as well as a museum about the city’s past and the role of immigration on its development.

    Eat $1 oysters

    A local delicacy and famously romantic

    Whether or not they’re an aphrodisiac is open to debate, but oysters are certainly tasty and Boston is famous for them. There are dozens of oyster bars around the city, many of which will serve up oysters for a dollar each – no one said a romantic meal had to cost you a fortune! Among the best of them are Warren Tavern on Pleasant Street, The Red House on Winthrop Street and Bastille Kitchen on Melcher Street.

    Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum

    A beautiful place to see a varied art collection

    The Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum provides a fascinating slice of Italy in the middle of Boston.

It’s not a huge museum, so there’s no risk of getting tired of exploring. The museum itself is virtually a work of art in its own right, with gorgeous scenery and rooms, especially the central courtyard. Visit on the third Thursday of the month for special events. Admission costs about $15.
