  • This park is a hidden gem! You can walk from Cambridge to the North End stopping to let the kids play along the way. It's highly recommended.  more »
  • This is one if my favorite parks in the city to visit at night. During the day its busy, at night it's mostly empty and has beautiful views. It's beautifully maintained and on hot nights it usually offers a cool breeze and relaxing atmosphere. You can fish, walk around and even visit a piece of the Berlin wall.
  • Duck Tour at Charles River. City tour by semi water-road tourist vehicle. Very cool tour. which travels through the downtown area of Boston city. It's history goes back to the 17 th century. Old big buildings. Active involvement in the American freedom war. Majestic appearance and beauty in the downtown is unchallengeable.
