Watching rowers slice their oars through the smooth surface of the water during the yearly Head of the Charles Race, with Harvard's steeples reflected in the river's glassy surface. Walking among the stately townhouses and shady trees of Commonwealth Avenue on a colorful fall day. Brunching on a shady patio on Newbury Street on a sunny summer afternoon. Navigating the narrow cobblestone streets and charming nooks of the Beacon Hill neighborhood. Taking in a baseball game under the bright lights of Fenway Park, with a view of the sparkling skyline in the distance. Reclining on the fields of Boston Common, under the gleaming dome of the State House. From its charming, old architecture, to its Atlantic Ocean-adjacent location, to its acres of public parks, to its dozens of picturesque college campuses, Boston is an undeniably beautiful city — and one made even more appealing by the fact that you can stroll so easily from one lovely attraction to the next.
