Tips from locals
Boston Common (Boston's "central park") is in the middle of the city and has lots of grass to lay on, benches to sit on, and paths to walk on. Food vendors give you lots of choices to eat or drink and its well connected on the Red and Green T lines (The T is the boston subway system).
