"THE CHARLES RIVER" Charles River Tip by heywinks

Charles River, Boston: 16 reviews and 25 photos

  Charles River
by heywinks

The Charles River separates Boston from Cambridge. It`s beautiful & you can often see the Harvard Crew rowing in the river. You can also walk or exercise along the river on both sides on it. Rollerbladers, bicyclers, & joggers are a constant scene. In the summertime, you can also try kayaking, sailing or windsurfing. Other facilities include 6 swimming pools, 12 tennis courts, & a fitness course.
This is a great place to take pictures as well.

Directions: Between Boston & Cambridge. To cross the river on foot, try the Mass Ave bridge from Copley.
