    There was a market on Friday (no idea if it's daily though). Big and spacious place for lunchtime or just for walk. Huges buildings as well. It's close to anything in Boston.

    Just a pretty square in a bustling part of Boston. Check out the Church and the Boston Public Library adjacent to the west of the square.

    Boston's best kept secret is in Copley Square. Boston Public Library is one of my favorite places in the city. Be sure to check out Bates Hall, especially at night.

    There's a Farmer's market here every week during the summer. This is one of my favorite squares in Boston for the opportunity to sit and a beautiful green area, and watch the city happen around you.
