Between Quincy and the Boston Harbor, I crossed the Christoper Columbus Park. A perfect day out for kids or for a romantic walk, the park is blooming and green during the Boston summer. There are swings and play areas for the little ones, and a merry-go-round for everyone to enjoy. You can fly a kite or sit in the park with your laptop and enjoy the sun, next to the cool breeze coming from the harbor. Super lively and fun, the park is a true destination to enjoy the summer, and certainly my next best destination to kill the boring days.
