This is a nice way to meander down to the harbor area. While there are some joggers/runners, most people are strolling along, enjoying the sites. There are places to sit and relax. It runs along the water. Nice way to avoid more crowded sidewalks.

Weather permitting it is just lovely to stroll along the Harbor Walk. If you want a little scenic exercise or need to walk off a few calories after dining at the many fabulous restaurants in the area.

The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with
historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through
one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston
Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling
statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the
pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where,
during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting
children and eager tourists through the pond. Have
