Went in the middle of Feb. it was very lively and fun. It’s about a three mile walk that ends at bunker hill. There’s a lot of restaurants right by the trails. Just follow the brick road!

The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with
historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through
one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston
Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling
statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the
pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where,
during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting
children and eager tourists through the pond. Have

You can start at the information center on the Boston Common on Trement Street. It is a bit of a walk from the Hilton so taking the green line train (the T) inbound to Park street is the easiest way to get there. You can... More
