Boston Common is America's oldest park in the heart of Boston, offering recreation opportunities and a glimpse into history through numerous monuments to the past. Designated as public space in 1640, British soldiers later camped here during the Revolutionary War. Part of the Freedom Trail, the park adjoins the Massachusetts State House and Beacon Hill. A favorite spot is the Frog Pond, which doubles as an ice skating rink. The park is the beginning of the "Emerald Necklace," a seven-mile (12-kilometer) string of local parks designed by Frederick Law Olmsted.
The Boston Commons are the most picturesk place in the world. The Boston Commons are a place of sernity and traquility. There is so much to do in this sanctury. The Commons could be called an "oasis" in the otherwise hustle and bustle of THE GREATEST AND MOST CIVILIZED CITY IN THE WORLD : BOSTON, MA. When you are in the Commons ( my oasis) you are for a short time in another world. Don't get me wrong Boston and for that matter MA is another world compared to the rest of the USA. I love MA. I currently live in jersey but I have plans to move to Boston. I don't follow anything ny , I stick out like a sore thumb so to speak. People say I left my heart in San Fransisco, but for me I was reborn in BOSTON. I consider myself a Bostonian. I love the Red Sox, Celtics and Bruins. So in conclusion Boston (and MA) are truly a world of there (its) own.
This place is one of the most beautiful and romantic place to be. The scenery is just like something you'd see on a tourist attraction brochure. Boston Common is one of the places, in my opinion, is something a tourist should see.
Friendly people, beautiful scenery, why wouldn't someone not like it. I definately recommend this site to anyone and everyone. Every since I was young, I fell in love with this place. This place is definately a dream come true.
Best starting point to walk boston. For shopping, downtown Crossing and Haymarket are just around the corner. For History, the State House and Freedtrail and Beacon Hill boarder the Common. The walk from Park staion Through the common and Gardens down Newberry street is great too.
Boston Common is so beautiful,and peaceful.I love to go there and just relax,and people watch.And watch the swans.If you like to take a walk,or walk your dog,or just take a blanet and have a picnic.The scenery is beautiful.People are kind and curtious.It is just a fun day.For yourself,or the family.You see it in SO many movie's.but you must see it for yourself.
A perfect afternoon on the common consists of a quilt, books or magazines, your love, a starbucks tea and an upper crust pizza. You can get swept away for hours just reading and cuddling with a special someone. If you need a break Charles street and Newbury street are just around the corner. You can bask in the sun or hide in the shade. No matter who you are the common has something to offer you.
