The renovation is absolutely amazing, grand, and opulent. The seats are very comfortable, and I am moved and inspired by how great it is. Opening night of the Boston Ballet was great. Can't wait to go back.

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
