Boston is blessed with a wealth of green space, most notably Boston Common, the oldest urban park in America. Boston Park Plaza is located just one block from this colorful oasis, making ours one of the most convenient of all open Boston hotels. With walkways lined with huge, stately trees and decorative shrubs that come alive in the fall, the Common is a must-visit destination when in town. Framed by the colors of the season, an afternoon here captivates and delights visitors of all ages.
Adjacent to the Common, the Public Garden is the oldest public botanical garden in the United States. Established in 1837, it has a distinct Victorian influence and boasts an array of beautiful trees and shrubs that are especially vibrant during fall. Perhaps the most famous species of tree in New England is the Sugar Maple, with leaves that turn vibrant reds, oranges and yellows. Take a stroll around the Garden Lagoon, which provides a spectacular view of nature and the downtown Boston skyline.
A Boston landmark, the Arnold Arboretum is one of the most important institutions dedicated to flora in the country. Just minutes from downtown, the Arboretum was established in 1872 as a place that could display “all the trees [and] shrubs, both indigenous and exotic, which can be raised in open air.” Today, the Arboretum covers 280 acres and includes one of the world’s largest living collections of flora. It highlights incredible varieties deciduous trees from around the world and in particular, the trees and shrubs native to the New England region. As you stroll through the Arboretum, keep an eye out for the stately Scarlet Oak with its fiery red leaves, and the Smoke Bush, which displays colors ranging from yellow and orange-red to royal purple.
From towering oaks and iconic maples to stately sycamores and smaller trees such as redbuds and sassafras, there is no shortage of color in Boston to reflect the best of the season.
