It was covered in snow, and completely magical.
Boston Public Garden in winter is definitely not your typical time of year to visit. There are no flowers, the swan boats are gone for the season, the paths either don’t exist or are full of slush, and it’s freezing.
But it’s also a completely white-washed winter wonderland that is really a sight in and of itself.
As long as the snow isn’t too high, the famous Make Way For Ducklings statue is a classic to see. It’s based on the book by Robert McCloskey about a pair of mallards who decide to raise their family on an island located in the lagoon of the Boston Public Garden. How adorable!
Also, if you really want play tourist, an extremely short walk away is the Cheers bar (well, the exterior),which was made famous by the TV show of the same name (not pictured).
Boston Public Garden is the perfect place for a stroll, and literally steps from the train (if that’s how you’re getting there).
Don’t let the cold stop you. Go.
