Clear blue skies and a day to spare prompted my husband Pinaki and me to explore the largest city in New England, that is, Boston. The city has maintained its urban growth without compromising on its natural beauty.
Boston stands proud as the birthplace of the American Revolution and the present day hotbed of art, education and culture. For baseball fans, the city offers a taste of Red Sox history at Fenway Park.
With so much to see and do, we set off early in an effort to reach Boston by 9 a.m. Our primary intention was to walk along Boston’s scenic harborwalk, which has been constructed to provide easy access to the Harbor and connect the waterfront neighborhoods. Some parts of it are still undergoing extension.
You can fly down to the Logan International Airport or ride the Amtrak into Boston. As a cheaper alternative, you could check out bus schedules and fares at gotobus.com. If you are driving down as we did, be prepared with some change or your EZ Pass for the toll booths. It took us 2 hrs 50 minutes from our home in Danbury, Connecticut.
Runners, bikers, joggers, walkers, rollerbladers and dogs greeted us at every step. We followed the harborwalk right up to Fort Independence Park overlooking the Pleasure Bay and passed a few parks, cafés and beaches along the way.
It is a 5.4 mile round-trip so make sure you have the right shoes on before you start. The lovely scenery around the walk and the Boston skyline in the distance more than made up for our tired feet. READ MORE
