Charles River Esplanade

If you find yourself in Massachusetts and looking for what to do in Boston, the Charles River Esplanade is a great option to check out.

On the side of Boston that separates the city from Cambridge lies a three-mile path known as the Esplanade (. To fully appreciate its beauty, visitors are encouraged to start their walks at the Museum of Science and then move westwards past the Boston University Bridge. In terms of what you will see, there are playgrounds for the kids and places to rent sail boats. It was originally known as the Boston Embankment and was created with the construction of the Charles River Dam (now the aforementioned Museum of Science).

The Esplanade underwent a major expansion from 1928 to 1936 which widened the park land.

The Charles River Esplanade is the perfect addition to any Weekendtrip in Boston.
