A little late March snowfall can’t stop time: Spring has technically arrived in Boston, and soon springtime weather will as well.
Here are several photographic reminders of just how gorgeous the city can look.
↑ The Public Garden tulips will soon bloom in oceans of red, orange, and yellow, including around the famed statue of George Washington.
↑ Back Bay is one of the best Boston neighborhoods for inhaling springtime. And it’s pretty historic, too.
↑ Speaking of especially beautiful neighborhoods in springtime, Beacon Hill is probably the city’s most aesthetically pleasing year-round, what with its narrow lanes, brick sidewalks, antique townhouses, window boxes, and the occasional cobblestone street.
↑ The South End, too, with its Victorians and vegetation, can provide walks to savor when the blooming starts.
↑ The Charles River Esplanade provides not only a fantastic hangout for the warmer months, but fantastic views of Cambridge across the Charles River. Here’s Harvard from Boston.
↑ Can’t go wrong in the spring with Boston Common, what with its hidden gems and its many activities (swan boats, anyone?).
↑ The Harvard-owned Arnold Arboretum in Jamaica Plain provides 281 acres of springtime reminders. Plus: Bike paths.
↑ A number of fabulous waterfront parks, including Christopher Columbus Waterfront Park in the North End, can provide excellent vantages for soaking up the warmer temps.
