The Seasons in Boston

This New England city adapts, seemingly overnight, to the changes in the seasons and the weather as the calendar pages turn.

In each season, a different feature of the city shines. In the spring, it's the parks and greenways, like the new Rose Kennedy Greenway, as the plentiful flowers bloom and the trees bud. In the summer, the pedestrian areas such as Faneuil Hall Marketplace teem with excitement and life. Fall, it's the walking trails, including the historic Freedom Trail, framed by the season's bright colors characteristic of New England fall foliage. In winter, it's the cobblestone pathways and romantic lamplit streets of Beacon Hill.

And, of course, the holiday season in Boston, Massachusetts, is filled with joy and celebration. The shopping can't be topped, and the festivals and celebrations are abundant.
