  • From carousel, to columns that light up (Blades), to gardens, etc. There's plenty to do and see along the greenway. Good for all seasons.  more »
  • Near the waterfront and crossed by the Freedom Trail, this very nice walkway is a delightful break of green parkway with tables, benches for relaxing along the way. We got food and ate it here.  more »

  • Had an awesome time walking the greenway especially passing this yellow house installation by Artist Mark Reigelman. Photo credits to my girlfriend Steph Del Rio :)
  • A marvelous linear park running along the former route of the RT 93 expressway which is now buried below ground. The park has many interesting amenities like a sculpture garden, a farmer's market, and spaces where high-end food trucks are often stopped. You can follow this from South Station all the way to the North End, practically to the Washington Street Bridge.
  • Among the greatest examples of highway infrastructure/space reutilization. It is impossible to walk along the greenway without imagining just how detrimental and underused such space was when the infrastructure lay bare above the surface. Great place for a stroll to take in the city views and the higher energy of Boston's downtown core.
  • Walk the whole way from South Station to North End! Gorgeous gardens!
  • Came for the Boston Local Food Festival I thought there would be more free things...but Yelp was there and I got a bag! Wooo. Lots of great stands and friendly happy people working them, happy to show their goods. Too many items just for sale though--when there's a bunch of things that are similar you have to try before you buy! People need to learn how to Q though...My friend was almost knocked over!

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.
