  • When in Boston, be sure to take a stroll at the Boston Common. Whatever the season, the Common has beauty to share. A couple of blocks of well landscaped park with parking available along its sidewalks and a parking garage. The place has the famous Boston Swan boats, "ducklings", playground, freedom walks, frog pond, Shakespeare shows ( when available) and usually host numerous events. Skate during the winter and water sprouts during the summer. Although, it has security at night, I would suggest doing your stroll in the daytime; unless there's an event with lots of people and extra lights abound. Boston Common is Boston's Central Park. Hotels, eateries and shops are available in the vicinity.

  • Great place to put up a little family picnic and rest for a while before you start on your city tour again. This place is a good centre point and walking distance from the church nearby and the Massachusetts state house (which I highly recommend). You could also stop here through your freedom trail walk. Vast area and filled with greenery.

  • We took a walking tour. It was 90 minutes and covered about 1.5 miles. Our tour guide was great. His persona was that of a British soldier and he remained in character giving a very interesting and humour perspective of all the sites we visited. The open park is beautiful and Central to so many wonderful sites and activities.

  • A very nice park to hang out in or just stroll around. It's the start of the Freedom Trail in Boston and has a nice visitor center with a knowledgeable staff and souvenirs. Sitting in front of the statehouse, the Commons has great views plus a nice fountain and a couple of monuments. A must see when visiting the city and a relaxing place to be.

  • Beautiful park with something for everyone. It is great to have a gem like this in the middle of the city, and sprawling out on the grass under massive trees while the city buzzes around you is a special feeling. Food trucks/carts are always around during the day. There are paved trails, plenty of green space, seating, and several bodies of water to feed ducks/sit and enjoy.
