BOSTON Review [5] South Station & Columbus Park

Recommended Posts

The area around South Station is home to the Children's Museum and the heavily-fortified Federal Reserve Tower. If you're coming into Boston on the Acela, you will pass through South Station.

This area forms the edge of Boston's skyscraper district. There are a few inlets and waterways and the density tapers off to the east.

South Station - I was lucky to have bumped into a parked Acela train.

Now I leave the South Station area back towards the ferries near Aquarium. The waterfront area is quite nice, with some gardens, benches and a lot of open space to enjoy the ocean breeze. The location is Christopher Columbus Park.

Boston brings back a lot of good memories. It was one of my most cost-effective trips. The plane ticket and accomodation were free, so I only had to pay for food, the transit pass, and the odd admission. Boston has a very European feel to it. I stumbled into Back Bay and Beacon Hill accidentally and just got lost in all the architecture. The south side is not as historic, but there are a few nice vantage points to snap a few photos of skyscrapers. It is also within walking distance of Chinatown, the parks, and the downtown core. I can still taste the delicious lobster I had at Quincy Market that summer.
