Where would we be without our green spaces? Boston may have notoriously fickle weather, but when the time is right to get outside, the city has plenty of beautiful green space to enjoy some fresh air and nature. The so-called Emerald Necklace—the nation’s oldest linear park system—links several of Boston's best parks, including The Fens, Boston Common, and the Public Garden. Other options include the celebrated Arnold Arboretum and the multi-use Rose Kennedy Fitzgerald Greenway. Whichever one you choose, make it a perfect outing by pairing that stroll through a park with a bite at one of the best restaurants in Boston, or with a drink at one of the best bars in Boston.
