A good place to get in your morning exercise (along with many other Bostonians). Nice views of the city and likely some sculling on the Charles.
Good walk on a summer day with a cold drink and friends.
This can be infinitely varied. Best thing to do is lengthen it. Extend your walk downstream to cross at the dam and upstream to cross at the BU bridge. Downstream there is a small embayment just northwest of the dam that is delightful. Crossing upstream at the BU bridge allows one to enjoy even more of the embankment on the Boston side.
Absolutely stunning. Perfect for a beautiful fall day as well.
