    I was looking for a park and couldn't find any, then I realize I stand just in the middle of it... Seriously: this is very little, but wonderful green oasis directly in the harbour. It is nice to sit ...  more »

    Close to the Harbour, watching the sea, can relax. Is nothing special, and the large park, as the name suggests are views on sea statue of Christopher Columbus.

    This is a nice relaxing green space along the harbor walk. There's lots of flowers and interesting landscaping as well as wonderful views of the harbor. A nice place to relax and escape the craziness ...  more »

    Picturesque location near the waterfront and downtown. Even prettier at night. If your a photographer then lots of options here. Good place to people watch.

    Nice little park. Very busy during the summer. The Long wharf ferry leaves from here.

    It's a great place to walk and enjoy the beautiful view of the bay and the City. You can take very nice picture in there and also,big you are hungry, have something to eat in some of the restaurants of the area

Where to stay in Boston

To stay close to where most of Boston's tourist action is, book a room at one of the many hotels located downtown, near the center of the city and state governments, businesses, and shopping. For a more affordable option, consider a budget-friendly boutique hotel or small bed and breakfast in one of the city's diverse residential neighborhoods. If you plan to stay longer and need a real home away from home, explore Boston's short-term rental options, which include private villas, waterfront lofts, and luxury apartments scattered across the city's historical districts.
