Charles River Esplanade

There is so much going on, on the Charles River Esplanade – but that’s only my guess, quiet as it was on that cloudy May Day. On warmer days, the Hatch Cell becomes alive with concerts and plays. There are many sports and playgrounds alongside, and paddling on the river. People are walking and jogging, others play on the lawn. Families and friends share picnics. There is music and laughter and basking in the sun. But, for now, let us enjoy a precious moment of peace, as transient and fragile as those pink cherry blossoms.

Running up that (Beacon) Hill

Or better yet, walking. Long strolls are the best way to marvel at the architecture of Beacon Hill, one of the most picturesque areas in Boston. With the Massachusetts State House, its gold gilded dome gleaming even in the rain, 19th century historical buildings like The Tudor, gas-lit and tree-lined streets, cobblestoned narrow passages, the Louisburg Square with some of the most exclusive residences in the city – and the most expensive ones in the whole of the U.S.A. – there will many instances to stop, gawp and catch your breath, I promise!
