  A lovely walk around Boston Common
by risse73

Boston Common is the hub of action in the downtown area. Life for Bostonians will be different without this park. It is where people go to spend time with family, friends and colleagues. It is a place where people congregate to satisfy the longing for solitude, the desire to be out in nature, the wish to be with others in a wonderful setting and the need to enjoy life's simple pleasures (e.g., spending time with family & friends, reading a good book, watching a Shakespeare play in the summer, enjoying the foliage, throwing coins in the fountain, etc.).

Enjoy Boston Common!

Directions: Bound by Tremont, Beacon, Charles and Boylston Streets.
