This past weekend in Boston we had beautiful weather. My friend and I decided it was the perfect occasion to go explore the South End which was a part of Boston we both didn’t know very well.
We spent our entire afternoon walking and taking pictures. We didn’t take public transportation once and ended up walking more or less 5.5 miles (8.85km).
We started from State where we parked the car, and walked all the way down Washington St. until we reached the turnpike. There we turned onto Marginal Road and kept walking until we reached Arlington street.
We visited the Arlington Street Church before heading back towards the First Church of Christ Scientist. Its dome is quite impressive.
After spending some time visiting the church, we decided to explores the streets behind the Prudential. We ended up reaching what is called the SW Corridor Park. It’s amazing how quiet and peaceful those streets are despite being so close to the very busy Boylston Street and Newbury Street.
On the way back we decided to go through the Public Gardens and Boston Commons in order to reach Quincy Market where we sat down for a drink and cookies, which were well deserved.
Overall it was a very nice day to take a walk around Boston. We haven’t seen all of the South End yet, but I would definitely recommend it if you are in Boston for a few days.
