We are lucky in Boston to have so many amazing green spaces to choose from, whether right in the city or quite nearby. One of my favorite places to get a dose of greenery is the Charles River Esplanade
. In between Storrow Drive and the Charles River, the Esplanade extends for 3 miles between the Museum of Science
and the Boston University Bridge and is connected to Beacon Hill, the Back Bay, and the West End by a series of footbridges. Huge crowds gather on the Esplanade on July Fourth for the fireworks and Boston Pops concert
, but there are lots of reasons to spend time on the Esplanade all summer long. Here are a few of Boston’s coolest things to do
on the riverbanks.
