  • If you like boats and water fronts, then this takes a lot of beating, especially in the spring & summer. Boat trips available with dolphin watching and some nice resteraunts. One of USA's more cultural experiences.
  • In my opinion, the most beautiful part of town!! Taking a walk and contemplating these incomparable views is unique: the sea, the harbour, the skyline... by day and by night, in summer or in the freezing cold of December - it's a feast for the eyes!!
  • This is a beautiful, well cared for park on the waterfront with a central arch that is lit up at night. There are benches, grass, flowers and frequently there's even a person playing music. It also has restaurants on either side and is across from the Rose Kennedy Greenway and Quincy Market. An awesome place to relax and despite being in the middle of the city it feels a million miles away.
  • Good view, fresh air, and a perfect environment. There even is a nice hotel there for tourists.
  • Nice little park right on the water. They have some nice views and a few benches. Nice spot to hangout for a bit. We saw a lovely couple taking engagment photos while we were there. A beautiful place.
