    If I have to choose just one single place to love in Boston, it would be North End (aka. Little Italy). I'm thoroughly infatuated with this little corner with great food, thriving Italian culture, and a piece of history.

    Willow trees, swan boats, statues and tulips. These are the things that come to mind when I think of the Public Garden. What a wonderful place for a stroll, picnic, or mid-afternoon nap.
