    My favorite park!!!! Best to go when you have some time to relax on a nice day. Heard it was one of the oldest park in the US. Gorgeous trees and lots of tulips. Squirrels are everywhere and we saw a swan sitting on her nest. Make sure to stop by the thinking cup coffee shop (stumpton coffee) before hand. ...

    This was my home for 4 years. I loved every bit of it, the campus reflects MIT's strive for innovation, technology, outside-the-box thinking. (e.g. Stata Center, interior of the Chapel, Infinite corridor) No grandeur, no pretense, just simply the embrace of individuality and functionality.

    Davis Square

    4.5
    5 reviews

    I'm a bit biased as Davis Square is where I call home these days. I frankly love the restaurant scene here. I think there's a nice variety of food venues.

    4.5
    22 reviews

    Boston's library is amazingly beautiful. The courtyard is home to concerts in the summer and other artistic exhibitions are hosted year round. Definitely worth popping in to see if you love old buildings! Also it's free!

    North End

    4.5
    35 reviews

    This is a slice of Italy, right in Boston! Great cafes and restaurants. Hannover Street is the main tourist draw, but you will find better, less expensive and more authentic food on one of the many side streets. After dinner, don't forget your pastries from Mike's (if you're willing to wait in line) or Modern.

    This museum isn't nearly as popular as it should be! The building itself is gorgeous and the collection is great, even if some paintings were stolen!
