Stunning, beautiful, and amazing! This is a beautiful part of Boston. So nice to leisurely walk around and enjoy the beautiful ponds and bridges. So many examples of amazing trees if you're a tree hugger like me. Loved it and didn't want to leave.....

We enjoy visiting Boston as much as possible but all of our trips here MUST include a trip to Public Gardens. It is an absolute must. A treat to visit the first public park in any city in America.

Visit this historic and ritzy Boston neighborhood to
soak up its classic New England charm as you stroll
down cobblestoned, gas-lamp lined streets. Bring your
walking shoes, camera, and select a nice day to wander
through the hilly neighborhood and check out its
exclusive addresses. Louisburg Square, Mt. Vernon
street, Chestnut street and the extremely narrow and
widely photographed Acorn street make a nice walking

Yes! There are vendors within the walking paths of the park. Right across the street there are coffee shops, fast food, restaurants, pizza you can see from Boston Common. Lots of choices.

It is in the middle of the City so I imagine you might be able to find a lot not too far away, but I can't say for sure.
