Walking Boston

Spring travel season is here in New England!  If you’re planning a visit to Boston and looking to stretch your legs, you’re in luck, because Boston is a great walking city.  Here’s a route I took with some family a few weeks ago:

Start at South Station.  If the T isn’t your thing, parking is only $9 max on weekends.

Head northeast via Atlantic Avenue and turn right on Congress Street toward the Harborwalk.  Pass the Tea Ship and stroll alongside that dirty water.

At Long Wharf, turn onto State Street toward Fanueil Hall Marketplace.  Walk through Quincy Market’s gauntlet of fast food.  No one will judge you if you fuel up.

You may or may not find this little piggy gone to Market.

Get back onto State Street and head west.  Turn left on Tremont Street.  Follow to Boston Common, the oldest city park in America.

Continue west and cross Charles Street and walk through the Public Garden, the oldest public botanical garden in America.

Exit the Garden onto Newbury Street and savor the old architecture.  Drop in a high-end boutique or two.

Turn left onto Fairfield Street and walk a block to the Prudential Tower.

Mapquest shows this route as three miles, but with all the poking around we did, my Fitbit recorded seven miles and 15,000 steps over three hours.

We rode up to the 52nd floor for snacks and drinks at Top of the Hub, featuring spectacular views, mediocre food, a solid wine list, and attitude to match the altitude.

And after this uber-Boston walk, we chose an UberBlack ride back to South Station.
