“If you're walking through the streets of Beacon Hill or the pathways of the Boston Common, you'll notice a building with a golden dome, made from copper and topped with gold. That's the Massachusetts State House, which has been there since 1798 and houses the state's government. There's plenty of Massachusetts history to take in if you visit for a free tour.”

“If you need a day out of the city and a place for the kiddos, make your way to the Franklin Park Zoo. There is plenty of free parking, and the zoo itself is great! Not only does this zoo have multiple play spaces (slides, climbing structures etc.) but there is also a 10,000 sq ft. Playground in the zoo for a break and some lunch. Its a great way to give the kids a break from the regular Boston attractions. ”

“The main square of the Back Bay area is surrounded by both old and ultra-modern buildings. Its architectural highlight is Trinity Church, a red sandstone building designed by architect Henry Hobson Richardson in his distinctive style, known as Richardson Romanesque. Trinity is widely considered to be his finest work. The murals, frescoes, and painted decorations inside are by John La Farge and much of the fine stained glass is by Edward Burne-Jones and William Morris. Facing it, across a grassy lawn where you can enjoy a picnic lunch with neighborhood office workers, is the Boston Public Library founded in 1848 as the first publicly funded lending library in the country. ”

“Boston’s Public Garden, located in Beacon Hill, is America’s oldest botanical garden. The 24-acre park boasts beautiful formal plantings, the world’s smallest suspension bridge, and its main attraction, an almost 4-acre pond, home to Boston’s famous Swan Boats. Astoundingly, these foot-pedal powered boats shaped like giant swans have plied the waters of the pond since 1877. No visit to Boston in the warm weather is complete without taking a ride on one (a captain supplies the foot power). A natural follow-up to a ride is to pay a visit to the Make Way for Ducklings bronze sculptures, done by Nancy Schön, as a tribute to the 1941 classic children’s story by Robert McCloskey.”

“From the ashes, so to speak, of the Big Dig, one of Boston’s longest construction projects, came this 1.5-mile-long park, which traverses several Boston waterfront neighborhoods. The park is packed with amenities and activities, from farmers markets to beer gardens to food trucks to outdoor movie screenings. There’s also live music, temporary exhibits, edible herb gardens, seven splash fountains, and much, much more. Kids will adore the custom-made New England-centric carousel, which features a seal, a peregrine falcon, a sea turtle, a lobster, a green grasshopper, and a whimsical sea creature instead of the usual four-legged creatures.”

“The winter equivalent to a summer Swan Boat ride in the Public Garden is to take a spin on ice-skates on the Frog Pond in the adjacent Boston Common. To ice skate on the pond at night with the golden dome of the State House and twinkling lights in the trees as a backdrop is one for the memory books. The 50-acre park, founded in 1634, is the oldest public park in the United States. Locals grazed their cattle on it until 1830. The Frog Pond is situated on the site of a former natural pond, which in 1848 was turned into a fountain to celebrate the city’s new public water system.”
