Being the first public botanical garden in the United States, Public Garden is still one of the most popular sights in Boston. It is really amazing and a great place for lone walks as well as family afternoons. 
My favorite thing about it are the Swan Boats, boats crossing the lagoon of the park. They can hold 20 passangers and work from April to Labor Day every year. 
Interesting that the boats are operated by the descendants of the man who started the swan boats about 130 years ago. :) 

Address:
Charles St, Boston, MA 02116, USA

Price:
The park is free.

Swan Boats:
Adults $2.75
Children $1.50
Seniors $2.00
