    So beautiful. It's a great place to stop and watch people and the city. It runs near the north end and Chinatown. Grab some Italian pastry then walk off the calories as you go to Chinatown!

    Winding from symbol-rich Chinatown Park to water-jet-studded North End Parks, the Greenway is an ideal spot for a stroll, a fun playground for kids, or a refreshing place to sit and eat a sandwich. Read more

    Definitely get a beer or a glass of wine at the Trillium Beer Garden on a nice summer night. Such a great spot.

    The water fountains at Hanover & Cross St and Milk & Atlantic are great spots for the kids to cool off in the summer.

    For cooling off in the summer heat our concierge recommends a quick trip to the Rose Kennedy Greenway where refreshing fountains offer refreshing spritzes for any age.

    Fun, variable park through the city. Great for a walk, to get lunch from a food truck and more.

    A nice, kind of new park in Boston right near the Harbor. I love taking a walk through before heading to work in the morning when I take the boat in.

    A great place for spending a hot day in the city. Lay out on the grass or run through the fountains.

    This is the greenest, most comfortable grass in the city. Perfect for reading or napping!

    Swings are a nice touch, and it's surprisingly peaceful considering all the bustle.
