    Just a nice place to sit, read and people watching. Otherwise always entertaining to see all the squirrels scampering around!

    Find the bench used during filming for Good Will Hunting. Great place to sit a while and reflect, reading messages left for Robin Williams! Beautiful.

    The best place in Boston. You have to come. If already here, walk down to the pins and make way for ducklings!

    Board the delightful Swan Boats in the Public Garden and take a leisurely turn around the lagoon. The foot-pedaled swans are an enchanting rest from a day of shopping or exploring.

    Spot the ducks! And hang out with the incredibly domesticated squirrels (they'll approach you if you pretend to have something in your hands for them).

    Very pretty. I missed the swan boats by a day. I wish it was listed on the go boston card that they were not year round.
