Paved path on flat surface. Very casual walk. Plenty of parking available.

Great ride!

I prefer to go on the week days, as it can get quite crowded most weekends. Nice view of Boston and the harbor islands. I like to take the trails that are off the main trail for a more nature feel.

So much colonial and Revolutionary War history interspersed among modern-day Boston. Over the years, I have been to most of the attractions along the trail...many multiple times (from the Boston Common, the Old State House, Faneuil Hall, Paul Revere's house, the Old North Church to the USS Constitution).

The Swan Boats in the Public Garden was a great memory for me as a young kid. Our visits into the city usually coincided with lots of other fun stuff, often ending with a Red Sox game at Fenway!

Boston Common is America’s oldest public park, and the Public Garden...the first public botanical garden. While living in the Boston suburbs as a child, I visited it with my family several times, usually during the spring when much of it was in bloom. I have also enjoyed returning as an adult during trips back to the city. Of course, riding the Swan Boats in the Lagoon was always a highlight in my younger days.
