It’s been a while since I got to just relax and take long stroll through Boston with my D-SLR in tow and a few friends just steps behind.
The Boston Common & Boston Public Gardens are immensely colorful during this time of year. When you walk through them at a leisurely pace you are held witness to the large amount of families, wedding photo shoots, balloon artists, musicians that are there along with plenty of food vendors filling the air with the sweet aroma of grilled onions and Italian sausages.
If you are a tourist and found yourself in the Boston Public Gardens then you are more than likely there to see the Swan Boat rides and may be boarding one yourself right now. It’s been years, maybe over a decade since I have been on one of those boat rides so I figured why not gamble at the chance! It didn’t hurt that it only cost $3!
The number of families that still do this ride amazed me. It was not only great to see them spend time with each other but this is probably one of the best things to do in Boston during the summer. Memories were made that day.
It’s crazy, it’s beautiful and this is why I always love Boston. Views like this were plenty on the boat ride. Just not enough time in the world to soak it all in.
You can definitely take them outside but it would be hard pressed to get them off of their phones. At least he is getting some vitamin D.
‘Oh me? I am just hanging.’
After walking so far in one direction we realized we had to back in the other direction. It was a daunting thought to conceive as we were about maybe 2 to 3 miles away from where we parked our car. This is the point that I had the brilliant idea of just grabbing a few Hub Bikes and just riding them back and docking them near where we were parked.
This mode of travel also allows you to cover much of this great city and see what there is to be seen.
I love just riding bicycles around and the ability to stop and just soak it in. Hub Bikes I must say are a great addition to the city and their cost is relatively cheap. We did the $6 Unlimited 30 Minute Trips option and couldn’t be happier. Great time with my friends while riding for sure. Nothing like a bunch of motorcyclists getting thrown off of wheels with a motor to one where you have to pedal.
