With the opening of the Rose Kennedy Greenway, Boston has become a paradise for city strollers and nature lovers alike. We’ll enjoy a tree-lined saunter through the history and culture of a nation’s birthplace.
Boston boasts a larger-than-life history: after all, the events that unfolded here founded a nation. But the heart of this city, its lovely green spaces, has an intimate feel that is best explored on foot. And with the opening of the waterfront Rose Kennedy Greenway, you can walk across Boston almost completely in parklands. Strap on your walking shoes, and you’ll see some of the city’s most historic buildings and places, with ghosts of patriots at every corner. And you’ll learn about some of Boston’s curious moments in history that featured elephants - and a flood of molasses!
