Sunny and dry yesterday so why not head into the city and see something new. Walked pretty much every path in the Common and Public Garden. 90% folks were masked, which was nice. Common is kept quite clean, part near the State House is closed, and no amenities open on New Year's Day, but plenty of free parking!

Loved walking around and seeing the squirrels. Saw a homeless guy sleeping on a mattress near the visitors center! The park beautiful, lots of statues. The Christmas tree was big and beautiful.

A visit to Boston would not be complete with a walk through the beautiful park. Enjoyed by locals and tourists it takes you away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Relax on a park bench and enjoy the beautiful scenery. Great place to people watch.

We travel to Boston once a month and always make time to visit the commons to hand feed the squirrels peanuts. The grounds are immaculate and safe.

From my research, I knew that the Freedom Trail started on the Common, near the Visitors center. It would have been helpful to have directional signs for the various destinations in the Common. We had to wander for about an hour until we found the starting point since the Visitors Center wasn't open. Hint, head towards the Capitol Blg, the building with the gold dome, The Freedom Trail starts at the bottom of the steps across the street from the Capitol.
