Great in place of overhead roadway.

What an improvement from the raised highway. They put it underground then built this great greenway. Great for walking or sitting.

We walked from the South Station through the length of the trail. It was a pleasant refreshing walk the made covering the distance of the inner city a literal walk in the park. The Greenway is spotless, and you will feel completely safe and at ease as you make your way along the path the the final rose garden.

This is a great place to take your lunch or just sit and watch the people. Lots of food trucks or other places to get food.

This is a welcome place to rest tired feet while walking the Freedom Trail. We stopped and ate a picnic lunch here, and our kids played in the fountains a bit.

We enjoyed visiting the Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy Greenway, it has an artistic exhibit which has a circle of the Chinese Zodiac symbols in the form of a head on a tall pole. The names of the Kennedys are engraved in the paving stones. It is broken up into districts and is 1.5 miles long, lovely place to visit, there is... More

I had last been here 18 years ago when the I-93 eyesore cut right through downtown. I would not have wanted to live with the 17+ year Big Dig (nor pay the taxes) but I have to say this green space they now have is really worth it. We walked it from the TD Garden to China Town and found... More

Walk around and enjoy the gardens and the outdoor art. This is a classy area with quiet spots and places to relax and people watch. Grab a bite to eat and enjoy it sitting in a red chair in Dewey Square.

We had lunch in Chinatown (try Gourmet Dumpling House!) and afterwards decided to walk a bit. East on Beach is the Chinese Gate and from there you can walk toward the Greenway wall with it blue mural, through landscaped gardens. Along the way there are play areas for children, places to rest and a fountain with very large heads of... More

We were told that this green space was inspired by Cenral Park in NYC. I have been to both places and they are equally smashing! When I traveled to Boston it was very warm. We saw some splash fountains and decided to take our shoes off. It was very refreshing. There were dogs and children there too. It is a... More

You will cross here if you do the freedom trail. It's worth exploring or you can just sit and relax and watch the world go by. It was an unexpected find.

Staying in North End

Neighborhood Profile
North End
Wandering around Boston’s North End can feel like being transported to Europe. Stroll down Hanover and Salem streets for the finest Italian restaurants, bakeries, cafes, and a few boutique shops. Take part in the big debate as to whether Modern Pastry or Mike’s serves a better cannoli. Before your food coma sets in, make sure to stop by historic Paul Revere’s home, and follow the Freedom Trail to Old North Church and Copp’s Hill Burying Ground. Take a rest in a cafe on Hanover street and observe the quirky, European character of the North End.
