So much to do, so much to see, so what's wrong with hitting the back streets?

There are several docks along the Charles River Esplanade, but this one, near the Mass Ave Bridge, is my favorite. It’s never crowded, very peaceful, and my go-to place to escape the bustle of Boston for a little while and feel a little bit closer to nature. Whenever I need some quiet time, I head down here with a good book to read while enjoying the breeze and sounds of lapping water. It’s also a great place for photos, as it has a lovely view of the Charles and the Cambridge skyline.

It’s also a good place to spend a relaxing afternoon with friends. I often head down here with a few people to soak up the sunshine and chat. Since it’s on the water, there’s always a nice breeze, and plenty of water Pokémon around for any Pokémon Go players. Now that it’s cooling down, it’s a great place to enjoy the autumn breezes and relax with friends, a great view, and fall foliage.
