Save Place
Charles River Esplanade, Boston, MA, USA
When people bring out their folding adirondack chairs and fishing rods to the Charles River Esplanade, you know it’s spring, finally. And then you see rows and rows of cherry blossom trees that line up the river, and wish it was always springtime...
Save Place
1175A Soldiers Field Rd, Boston, MA 02116, USA
As the sun sets, it's a special moment to find yourself walking along Memorial Drive on the Charles River bike path. Running next to the banks of the Charles River, this pathway winds along the north edge of the city proper. There are great views...
Save Place
62 Long Wharf, Boston, MA 02110, USA
On Saturday, we got up and tried unsuccessfully to have breakfast at the Paramount in Beacon Hill and the North Street Grille in the North End. Guess that’s what happens when you try to brunch at...
Save Place
50, 800 Boylston St, Boston, MA 02199, USA
Boston is a big city, yet it is possible to see all of the famous sights in one hour at one place: the Skywalk Observatory, inside the Prudential center. As a local, I go there often to see how the city and the view changes—spring's vivid color,...
Save Place
Boston Harbor, Boston, MA, USA
When booking my ferry tickets for Salem, I didn't realize the view I would see when leaving Boston. In the summer months, ferries to and from Boston to Salem run a few times a day. The views are spectacular when leaving the city and even more so...
Save Place
374 Congress St #307, Boston, MA 02210, USA
One of the first things I like to find when visiting a new destination is a place to take a good walk. Winding through the city's waterfront neighborhoods, the design of the HarborWalk allows the public to connect with the cleaned and restored ...
Save Place
Barnstable County, MA, USA
If you want to go somewhere with a nautical atmosphere then Cape Cod is perfect. There are countless harbors with boat-lined docks like this one. Whether you want to go on a whale watch, spend an afternoon on a fishing boat, or just paddle around...
Save Place
Dennis, MA, USA
After some of the views I've seen on Cape Cod beaches I don't know if I would ever want to be there without access to a camera. These beaches are lively during the Summer but calm and quiet during the offeason. I could walk them for hours.
Save Place
Sandwich, MA, USA
If you are ever on Cape Cod there are amazing trails near the beaches in a town called Sandwich. These trails take you through grassy dunes and shallow marshes. I could write 1,000 words about it but, but instead I'll direct you to the picture.
Save Place
Nauset Light Beach, Eastham, MA 02642, USA
Nauset Lighthouse is located in Eastham, Massachusetts on Cape Cod. The area around the lighhouse provides for some great pictures. Tours are offered on some days. Check online for schedules. The entrance to a beach is located across the street...
Save Place
Concord, MA, USA
Often overlooked by tourists visiting Revolutionary battlefields and Walden Pond, but beloved by locals, Estabrook Woods is a serene spot for a walk in Concord, Mass.
Save Place
Walden Pond, Concord, MA 01742, USA
This kettle hole, formed by retreating glaciers over 10,000 years ago gained fame as a place of inspiration for Henry David Thoreau in the mid1800's. The cabin he lived in for two years when he wrote Walden, Life in the Woods, was owned by his...
