America's Oldest Park
The Boston Common, built in 1634, is America's oldest park and the start of the famous Freedom Trail. A beautiful spot to walk in all seasons and try to imagine the Redcoats making camp there in 1775. During the winter, the Frog Pond has a magical skating rink that will delight both young and old—especially in the early evening when the surrounding trees twinkle with fairy lights.
