Steph: Why The Boston Public Garden is Awesome

This past weekend, my COM Ambassador group and I spent the afternoon in the Boston Public Garden. I hadn’t been in a while, and it reminded of me of just how awesome that place really is. With the weather slowly starting to get colder, now is the perfect time to go and check out one of the most beautiful spots in Boston!

  • Have a picnic! My group and I grabbed some sandwiches from Subway and set up camp next to the beautiful lake. It was so nice to just hang out, eat, listen to music, and enjoy the beautiful scenery.
  • Prime People Watching! In a four hour period, we witnessed 3 wedding photoshoots. 3!! It was so fun to watch, and now I know where I want my wedding pictures taken…Also, so many cute dogs and little kids running around. A couple of terriers came by to say hello, as well as this adorable little boy with a spaceship backpack.
  • Swan Boats! I’ve never done this myself, but it looks like so much fun! Its pretty much a Boston staple. Take a nice little ride on a swan boat on the lake!

I hope this inspires you guys to go explore what the city has to offer!
