There are several excellent places to see spectacular fall colors within the city of Boston. Visiting these parks will be extra special in your Nissan from Nissan 24. Fall is a wonderful time to take your new car out for a spin to Boston’s parks and gardens to experience this amazing natural show.
Boston Common and Public Gardens
Boston Common and Public Gardens is the premiere venue in the city to see the vibrant reds, oranges and golds of fall. Species of oaks and maples line the pathways and streets through these public areas creating a canopy ablaze with color. Shrubs and vines add their own special touch.
Historic Beacon Hill Neighborhood in Boston
Just north of Boston Common is the picturesque and historic Beacon Hill neighborhood. Here, amongst the classic row houses you’ll find street trees in a full riot of color. Tucked in between and behind the homes are hidden gardens. Tantalizing hints of colors from tree branches that reach out from their hiding places invite visitors for a closer look. Not to be outdone in the color war, the English ivy that envelopes many of the brick walls turns a brilliant mahogany.
The Famous Emerald Necklace in Boston MA
From Beacon Hill you can access the famed Emerald Necklace. This is a ring of parks developed for the enjoyment of the city’s residents. Within this system is the Arnold Arboretum. More than 5,000 species of plants thrive here, making the park a wonderful place to enjoy the fall colors. The arboretum hosts both walking and driving paths. Green lawns and peaceful ponds tucked between plantings provide the perfect backdrop for leaf viewing.
Boston Nature Center
The Boston Nature Center offers visitors a more natural environment in which to see the fall spectacle. Trees as well as undergrowth exhibit showy colors. Walking paths showcase the center’s best features and provide excellent opportunities for photography.
Charles River Esplanade
Finally, a leisurely drive along the Charles River Esplanade is a treat for leaf peepers. This narrow park is planted with over 2,000 species of trees, many of which show vibrant fall colors. Nissan drivers will be treated to orange and gold trees interspersed amongst the historic bridges, band shell and boating docks.
