Enjoy the beauty of nature at the Boston Public Garden. Take a ride in a swan boat through the body of water in the Common led by a tour guide. Enjoy the variety of trees and flowers that make up the Garden and surround the pond. Tickets for the ride is only $3.50 and this adventure does not take up a large time commitment.
My family and I, although living near Boston our entire lives, had never taken a ride on a swan boat until this past spring although it is one of the most popular tourist attractions in Boston. We took a ride and learned about our city from the tour guide. We spent the day walking along the paths of the Garden and Boston Common and enjoyed the beautiful day. The Boston Common is a refreshing spot to wander through among the hustle and bustle of the city.
Grab lunch at the Boston Common Coffee Company! In addition to enjoying a cup of hot coffee, stop by the cafe for a sandwich or salad. I recommend trying the The Big Tony (best meatball sub I have ever had). All menu items are reasonably priced.
