“See Boston on foot”

Ranked #8 of 87 things to do in Cambridge
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 19 August 2017

This is a lovely way to see the city. Walk, jog or bike along the Charles and view the crew teams, sail boats and Duck Tour boats.
There are many sculptures and memorials along the path. You can start from the Charles street T stations and walk as far as you'd like. Use a foot bridge to cross Storrow Drive into the Back Bay and get a snack.

The bike path and the walking path give you a great opportunity for relaxation or exercising while enjoying the beautiful views of the Charles River and the cities of Boston and Cambridge. Enjoy!

Beautiful path along Charles River with Boston skyline as a backdrop ! A great ride or walk, as you can start on one side and come back on the other side of the river to your starting point !!

If you were thinking about renting a bicycle from the Cambridge Bicycle to ride on the path, be forewarned. They tell you up front that its a basic 3 speed bike. What they don't tell you is that they have had a problem with their rentals being stolen so currently, June 2017, they are purposely renting bikes that are so bad no one would want to steal them. This isn't a basic Schwin 3 speed which would have been nice. It's a heavy metal clunker with no water bottle holder, slippery leather handle bar grips and seat and geared so high it's only suitable for the flattest rides. Avoid these bikes at all cost, they are so bad no one would want to steal them...
