  • It was late autumn, but the trees were barely changing color. That didn't matter, this is the most charming spot to stroll and wander. Plenty of seats to stop and look around at the gorgeous homes alo...  more »
  • We strolled along here on our way back from the commons. A nice paved path between 2 lines of large shade trees. There is a number of statues along the way. The green space is wide enough that you har...  more »
  • Stunning views as you walk through the Commonwealth and take in a little of Bostons history. By far the best time to see this mall is around Christmas time when all the trees on the path are lit with ...  more »

  • This narrow mall runs down Commonwealth Avenue and just a couple streets away from Newbury Street. It’s remarkable how close both are to each other yet it’s a completely different vibe. For a city this size Boston has done well to incorporate enough green to provide refuge from the hustle and bustle.
  • Walking down the Comm Ave Mall path transports you into a serene oasis amidst the surrounding urban environment. The entire path is adorned with the pristine, beautifully lit trees, perfect for bringing a date or just enjoying a peaceful stroll. No matter the season, this has always been one of my favorite places to walk. If you're visiting Boston, this is a must-visit, especially for the wonderful pictures that you can take.
  • Instead of taking transit, on one of the days to my trip to Boston, I walked the Common wealth Ave parks. I don't think people give this piece of "The Emerald Necklace" enough credit. Every few steps along this row of parks is a statue, memorial, or dedicated bench. I found "Pokemon Go" to be a useful map while walking along these parks because each pokestop and gym represented one of those three types of sights to see. When I saw gym or pokestop coming up I could click to find a picture of what they were marking and then I would stop my walk to look where I was to try and find it. My favorite piece was a set of statues about significant Boston women. Take a stroll if you can. Not to be missed!
  • A lovely place to people watch or walk the dog!
  • One of the best streets in Boston. Reminds of a street in Lima by the same name.

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.
