Boston Common

Picture the Puritans strolling along the pastures back in the early 1600s at American’s very first public park. Colonists bought the original 44 acres from European settlers in 1634 to establish downtown’s Boston Common, an icon just a short walk from the hotel, also the start of The Freedom Trail. Today, the green urban oasis is 50-plus acres of lawns and flower beds, fountains and sculptures, sporting fields and playgrounds, a popular spray pool and carousel, plus the beloved Frog Pond. Join locals picnicking in summer where Redcoats once camped during the American Revolution and ice skating on the frozen pond in winter.
