    While it may not be the best place to relax in the winter, you will find large groups of students relaxing on the grass facing the Charles River. This is about as tropical as it's going to get!

    It's even better at night: sit on the bank and look at all of the pretty lights reflect off the Charles...especially from the Hyatt Regency.

    When it's nice out, and it's already packed, beware open patches. You're about to sit in the middle of some game of frisbee, baseball, or football. Duck.
