Mask on, and start your walk. Lot to take in - back drop of a city, the scent of the Atlantic, the beauty of nature. People watching. Dog walking. Just a great way to unwind. And then find a cafe and ponder!

17/17 experience! Water is very refreshing after a long day in the hot sun. Only downside is that it’s not completely legal... but if you don’t get caught, it’s super fun! Definitely would recommend jumping in to a friend! 🏊‍♀️

This big lovely park is terrific in the summer when there are outdoor concerts and all the green is happening. Alas we were here in the winter, so not such a great time, but still great views of the river.

A little way off the hustle and bustle of the city, Charles River Esplanade flatters the senses of the visitors by its beauty of greens, the sparkle of the river surface, the sound of the birds as well as the smell of the wind. I think this is one of the best spots if you'd like a moment to relax during a tour in Boston.
