Boston By Foot Tour of The Month: Commonwealth Ave., Boston's Grand Boulevard
Boston's grand boulevard, Commonwealth Avenue, provides an enduringly popular stroll. The tour parallels the 19thand development of the Back Bay from its origin at Arlington St. for 7 blocks along the tree-lined, grassy Mall. See how careful effort over 150 years has preserved the "grandness" of the Avenue.
Meet at the George Washington statue in the Public Garden at the Arlington Street entrance at the beginning of Commonwealth Avenue. Rain or shine.
