When the Red Sox are playing in the World Series, the "Make Way for Ducklings" statues are as excited as anyone in Beantown.

"Since being established by Horace Gray in 1837, the Boston Public Garden has had a strict "No Nudity" policy. Trust me." - Conan O'Brien

On your way to the Swan Boats in Boston Public Garden, be sure to pass by the home of the first same sex marriage in the nation, the Arlington St. Church.

1st public garden in US. Created in 1837 when former Supreme Court Justice Horace Grant donated his camillia collection. Designed by George Meacham who won $100 for efforts. More info via blog.

Sit on the benches by the pond during the day with a good book. And enjoy a lovely picnic at night with some hot tea. The public garden is truly one of the most beautiful places in Boston.

They say not to feed the ducks, but let's get real it's the cheapest way to make a whole lot of friends. All it takes is one loaf bread and you are God for an hour. Enjoy!

The park benches next to the pond are excellent for people watching and reading a good book on a Saturday afternoon.

Use a wide angle lens or panorama feature of your camera and a small aperture such as f/16 to capture the dramatic vistas around the Lagoon. Take photos of the Swan boats and suspension bridge too!
