The first botanical garden in America is right here in Boston! The Public Garden was founded in 1837 and transformed from marshland to a beautiful natural oasis that’s a must-see attraction.
There are endless photo opportunities waiting to be captured in pictures: colorful flowerbeds, weeping willow trees, flowing fountains, the George Washington statue greeting you upon arrival at the Arlington St. entrance, the legendary Swan Boats sailing across the lagoon in the heart of the garden, and the famous Make Way for Ducklings sculpture.
The grand finale of this photo tour is the Esplanade, Boston’s famous park along the Charles River, with spectacular panoramic views of the Cambridge skyline.
