Some people miss out!
The Public Garden is one of the most beautiful places to go and spend an afternoon. One tends to focus on the Swan Boats and the families and the flowers, but most miss the statues, sculptures, and variety of trees there are. This tour revealed surprising and interesting tidbits in a gorgeous public space. Imagine replacing this space with high rises and buildings. It almost happened.
It's hard not to like the Public Garden. But after you listen to this audio tour (and hopefully do the tour in person, although it's still fun to listen to at home), you have to fall in love with the place. I love spending time in the garden, but this tour pointed out little secret spots and told me stories I never knew. This is really the coolest thing to do. Highly recommended!
