5 Boston Landmarks to See in the Spring

boston-landmarksLast week, we discussed some reasons to relocate to Boston for accelerated nursing school. Whether you’ve just relocated to Boston for nursing school or you’ve lived in the city for long enough to call it your home, we’ve come up with a list of places to visit to spice up your schedule this spring. We’ve had a hard winter! It’s time to enjoy the sunshine.

Boston Public Garden

The Boston Public Garden is a great place to go for a relaxing getaway. You’ll enjoy thousands of exotic plants and captivating water fountains. If you’re looking for a one of a kind experience, be sure to visit the garden beginning in mid-April when the swan boats make their return to cruise the lagoons. You’ll even receive a dose of history on your visit, as the Boston Public Garden is the oldest in the nation. Whether you’re visiting the garden for the first time or the hundredth time, you’re sure to enjoy a stress-free day to regain your nursing school focus and admire the city.

Quincy Market

The Faneuil Hall Marketplace, popularly known as Quincy Market, is located in downtown Boston on South Market Street. Quincy Market is a hot spot for tourists, but there is still plenty to do and see for Boston residents. The indoor-outdoor market was constructed in the 1820s, making it one of Boston’s historical landmarks. The market offers shopping and dining options that will surely keep you busy for a few hours.

Fenway Park

Even if you aren’t a baseball fan, Fenway Park is one of Boston’s most sought-after attractions. It’s the oldest Major League park and home of the Boston Red Sox. With games starting in the spring, it’s the perfect time to plan a trip to Fenway Park. Attending a Red Sox’s game is on the top of many tourists’ to-do lists and loyal fans’ weekly schedules. If you can’t score tickets to enjoy the game experience, don’t worry. Fenway Park also offers tours that take visitors behind-the-scenes and into the history of the park.

Freedom Trail

We’re excited about the Freedom Trail this spring! If you didn’t participate in the Freedom Trail 5K mentioned in our blog on ways to bring in the New Year in Boston, you won’t want to miss out this time around, especially in the warm weather! The Freedom Trail is a 2.5-mile walk through the city’s historic district. If you’re looking for quick way to get some exercise, the Freedom Trail provides the perfect scenery for a walk or run. Or, you can take your time and stop to visit the various landmarks.

Boston Light

Visiting the Boston Light is a great way to escape the hustle and bustle of the city. The Boston Light is located on Little Brewster Island in the Boston Harbor. It’s the second oldest lighthouse, and it’s the only one manned by the U.S. Coast Guard. Not only is the lighthouse a sight to see, but you’ll also enjoy the picturesque waterfront views.
